THREE TO SEE

DJ Harvey WR, CB

National recruit who had a fantastic sophomore season on both sides of the ball. Caught six TDs on offense, intercepted seven passes on defense.

JD Hernandez MLB

One of the most underrated linebackers in the region. Made 168 tackles last season and had four sacks.

Chayden Peery QB

Has started since his freshman season. Arizona State offered Peery a scholarship this offseason.

OUTLOOK

From Coach Ellinghouse:

“I think we have the potential to be very strong.  We return a great deal of our core.  We need to develop a winning mentality as a team.  In theory, this group could be one of our best.”

Ellinghouse is spot on. There are 16 returning starters from last year’s team that played in a state championship. The Division I playoffs are a possibility.
