Coach's outlook: "Even though we lost a lot of very good players from last year's team, I believe we will be a very good team," White said. "We are big and strong on offense, and strong and quick on defense. Our inexperience is off-set by our hard work and athleticism. We should be a balanced offense and a 'bend but don't break' defense.
"Our league (Sunset) is tough with a lot of parity, so it will be tough to go 5-0. However, we will work very hard to defend our title. We are proud to have won the Sunset League eight out of the last 11 years."
