Lancers' man in the middle: center Tony Cruz


Tony Cruz

2-MINUTE DRILL

Coach: Thadd MacNeal. Overall record — 71-36 (9 years). Record at school — 26-21 (4 years).

Division: I.

League: Avocado West.

Section titles: 6 (1961, ’62, ’65, 2002, ’05, ’06).

Player to watch: Troy Cassidy has emerged as one of the best athletes and most versatile players in the county. He plays TE on offense and LB on defense. He’s quick, he’s strong and he showed his athleticism by starting on the Carlsbad volleyball team that went 22-9 and lost in the San Diego Section Division I finals. He’s a team captain, carries a 3.6 GPA and is being recruited on a national stage.

At a glance: QB Shea Morales is back to lead the offense. He’ll throw to Kellen Peet (another volleyball player), rangy Huntyr Cornell and sure-handed Ramon Sanchez. Up front, LT Zach Thomas has received multiple college offers. On defense, LB Gavin Gestring and DBs Peet, Matt Spiering and Danny Wood all return.
