2015 Orange Glen season preview

Patriots' man in the middle: center Robert Morales


Robert Morales

2-MINUTE DRILL

Coach: Jason Patterson. Overall record — 6-5 (1 year). Record at school — 6-5 (1 year).

Division: IV.

League: Valley.

Section titles: 1 (1967).

Player to watch: RB Roger Rickman, who rushed for 1,543 yards and 15 TDs last season, is nursing an injury and is lost for at least half the year. So Tyrone Hickson, who rushed for 354 yards last season as a sophomore, must step up.

At a glance: The Patriots switched from a spread offense to a double-wing, grind-it-out, run-oriented attack last season. And it paid off in six straight wins to open the season, outscoring opponents 222-81. But OG went 0-4 in league and lost its last five. There is plenty of beef up front in Luis Mendoza (285), Brandon Velez (265), Robert Morales (260) and Diego Mendoza (285). The defense is led by LBs Edgar Aceves and Bernie Paz and DBs Richard Barry and Billy Mercado. Barry had 44 tackles last season while Aceves had 32.
