Longhorns' man in the middle: center Pablo Quex


Pablo Quex

2-MINUTE DRILL

Coach: Paul Gomes. Overall record — 56-43-4 (9 years). Record at school — 16-19 (3 years).

Division: II.

League: Avocado East.

Section titles: 2 (1988, ‘89)

Player to watch: Coach Paul Gomes’ best teams have had a great MLB. This RBV team appears to have one in 6-foot, 220-pound junior Braxton Ranshaw.

At a glance: Injuries wiped out the Longhorns last season. At times, they had as many as 10 starters out at once. That might pay dividends this season as Rancho Buena Vista returns 29 lettermen and 23 players who started games last season. Junior QB Josh English and senior RB Dominic Taylor are the keys on offense. Another mark of a good Gomes team is OL play. OT Corban Taumaoe will try to keep defenses off English while opening holes for Taylor. The Longhorns gave up 40 or more points in five games last season. But there were also some very close losses. So this team isn’t that far away.
