Top returning players
Three keys to the season
1. Lopez likes what he has seen from his players in the weight room this summer and is eager to see what they will bring to the field.
2. The offense will return four starters and will have a deep threat for Kruse. Landrum, one of the fastest players in the state, will cause teams trouble deep down the field.
3. The defense will have some key players back on the defensive line, which will be a key part of its success. Payton Collins (5-8, 235) and Jai’Schaun Brown (5-8, 220) will both be juniors this season and will be part of the four-man front on the defensive line.
