Fort Lupton's Vasquez makes move from player to coach

BRUSH – Former Fort Lupton football player Jalen Vasquez stepped into a new role for his alma mater this fall – that of an assistant coach.

Vasquez, who graduated from FLHS in 2014, became interested in coaching through a tip from his younger brother, Lorenzo.
