Calvillo's high school retires his jersey

Anthony Calvillo gave La Puente High School plenty of reasons to break its long-standing tradition of not retiring former athlete's numbers. Over 70,000, in fact.

On Monday afternoon before a packed gymnasium, the school did just that by retiring Calvillo's No. 13 jersey while he was surrounded by family and old friends.

Calvillo, a 1990 graduate of La Puente, became professional football's all-time leader in passing yards last season as a member of the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes. He has 73,412 career passing yards.

Merci Pi-Cat de cet aimable relai.

Le simple fait qu'il ait pu participer à cette activité montre que Calvillo est un grand homme derrière sa grande humilité.

Dans la plupart de ses interventions, le côté humain a toujours le dessus et c'est en bonne partie ce pourquoi il inspire le respect. Au-delà ses performances, il y a le gars simple et authentique éclipse le quart-arrière légendaire qu'il sera toujours.
