Last year: 2-9
Coach: Kenny Nears, 4th year
Key players: David Moa (OL-DL), Steven Fanning (LB), Alejandro Hernandez (LB).
Scouting report: The Komets experienced a rough patch last season, a far cry from 2011 when they won seven regular-season games, plowed through Central League opponents, and earned a playoff berth. It certainly didn’t help that they moved into the more competitive Western League with Madison, Point Loma and Mission Bay. Kearny struggled to score and defend, surrendering 32 points per game while scoring just less than two touchdowns a game. Solid players like Fanning, Moa and Hernandez return on defense, so expect more competitive games and better results.
