Jordan Johnson 5-9 200 HB-DE Jr.

Coach: Justin Price, seventh season, 21-34. 2011: 4-5

Outlook: A trip to state has still eluded Price since 2008, something he believes the Vikings can rectify by winning the turnover battle and finishing drives with touchdowns to explosive athletes such as Soto.

Mitch Norris 6-1 225 OL-DL Sr.

Coach: Tyler Ryan, first season. 2011: 3-6

Outlook: The streak of 20 consecutive playoff appearances ended last season at Wellington, so Ryan’s first task will be to rectify the situation by taking advantage of the experience the Crusaders have in the trenches.
