Key players, scouting report, facts & figures

Last year: 5-6

Coach: Jason Texler, 2nd year

League: Valley

Division: III

Key players: Isiah Hennie (athlete), Cameron Cruz (WR-DB), Devonte Murphy (RB-DB), Dimitrius Sims (RB-DB), Tyler Nix (WR), Cody Meyer (OL-DL), Matt Garcia (LB), Kevin Estes (OL-DL), Khris Alvarez (OL-DL), Anthony Zuniga (OL-DL).

Scouting report: The ideal scenario would be to move Hennie from quarterback to concentrate on receiver and play some defense, but that won’t happen unless Will Freed or James Hartwell (up from the JV team) wins the QB job. Hennie had 36 catches for 530 yards and five TDs to earn second-team all-league honors as a junior. Other than the QB issue, consistency at receiver is the team’s other nagging question. Hennie, Cruz (a second-team all-leaguer at defensive back) and Nix could be good enough for Texler in the passing game. Murphy and Sims will likely share running duties behind a line that includes Meyer (6-foot-3, 228), Estes (6-6, 253), Alvarez (6-4, 300) and Zuniga. All of those blockers will take turns playing defensive line too. Garcia is the anchor at linebacker. Zuniga, Estes and Garcia were honorable-mention all-leaguers.
