Last year: 3-7
Coach: Scotty James, 1st year
Key players: Christopher Teixeira (WR-S), Jordan Mitchell (QB-DB), Michael Sills (OL-DL), Yoshi Matsui (RB-LB), Cody Meyers (MLB), Brandon Casey (OLB), Richard Cuthill (DL).
Scouting report: James, who played defensive back at San Diego State, believes he can get the Warriors back on the right side of .500 after a couple tough seasons. He has assembled a staff of former Aztecs teammates and believes his players have bought into what they’re trying to do. Mitchell, a sophomore, will run a spread offense and will rely on Teixeira, a senior, as his top target. Sills should be a stalwart on both lines. Meyers and Casey should be key cogs in the Warriors’ 4-3 defense, and Cuthill, a senior, features a lethal combination of size and speed up front. James will look to take advantage of his team’s quickness on both sides of the ball.
