Fundamentals a focus for Livingston

Rvierside QB Dalton Livingston (6-0, 185) lit up the scoreboard and picked apart defenses last fall, but that doesn't mean he's resting on his laurels. The talented signal-caller has been hard at work with the rest of his team this spring as he tries to fine-tune his game so he can be even more productive in 2011...

"The spring has been good," Livingston told JCFootball.com recently. "It's been good for me and the rest of the new guys and just us as a team. We've gotten a lot of good work in and I've been able to work on a lot of my fundamentals.

"A lot of it for me has been my pocket mobility and also making my reads quicker and getting the ball out faster.

"I feel like I'm reading defenses a little better than I was last year and that's from watching tape and seeing what defenses are trying to do. Once you figure out what a defense is doing, you can know where to go quicker and that allows you to get the ball out and to the right guy."

While leading Riverside to a 10-1 record with their only loss to eventual National Champ Mt. San Antonio, Livingston completed nearly 60% of his passes for 2,746 yards, 23 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

Livingston prepped at Seven Lakes (Katy, Tx.) High School and told JCFootball.com earlier this year that his record as a starter probably limited his options.

"We were something like 4-20 while I was the starter, so that didn't help much," Livingston admitted with a chuckle. "We also ran a pro-style offense and I only got about 18 passes per game, so I didn't put up big numbers.

"I knew I wanted to keep playing and felt I could do it at the highest level and there's nothing like California for JC football."

Livingston will be able to leave after the 2011 season and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
