Pirates' man in the middle: center J.B. Hunter


J.B. Hunter

2-MINUTE DRILL

Coach: Dave Rodriguez. Overall record — 41-34 (7 years). Record at school (1st year).

Division: I.

League: Avocado West.

Section titles: 15 (1963, ’75, ’95, ’97, ’99, 2002, ’04, ’05, ’06, ’07, ’08, ’09, ’10, ’12, ’14).

Players to watch: Nick Zimmerman and Jamie Harris will do the heavy lifting up front for the Pirates. The 6-foot-1, 255-pound Zimmerman will start at left tackle on offense and tackle on defense. Harris (6-0, 250) will start at right guard on offense and tackle on defense.

At a glance: After 26 seasons, John Carroll has stepped down as head coach of the Pirates. Rodriguez, who was part of the Oceanside program for nearly a decade, comes back from Arizona to run the team. He plans to “honor the past while attacking the future.” The Pirates are strong and experienced on both front lines but lack experience at the skill positions. Isaia Paopao tore his ACL in the spring and is lost for the season.
