|Trinity, Cathedral, ACCS previews|
After going winless in 2008, Adams County Christian School head football coach Paul Hayles knows the mental preparation is just as important than the physical aspect for 2010.
"Our talent level is better than it has been, but we have to find success to set our minds on the right path," Hayles said. "This is a very hard-working group. Attitudes are good and I am seeing signs of leadership, which has been a key missing ingredient in the past."
At quarterback is junior Kent Yates (5-10, 165).
Running backs are juniors Brandon Sanders and Rusty Blackwell and senior Bryce Murray.
Daniel Guedon is at wide receiver.
The offensive line consists of senior Ethan Rymer, junior Corvin Day, junior Casey Calcote, junior Ben Byrd, who stands 6-5 and weighs 240 pounds and senior Landon Givens.
Sophomore Jake Brumfield is at tight end.
The defensive line consists of sophomore Christian Credeur, senior Sukie Singh, senior Justin Hicks, Byrd and Day.
Linebackers are Blackwell, junior Zack Day, sophomore Christopher Perry and Brumfield
Defensive backs are senior Dillon Johnson, Murray, Guedon, senior Lee Swinney and junior Corey Emanuel.
"For the first time since I have ben back we have experience and depth, even if it is not as much as we would like," Hayles said.
Swinney is doing the punting, while Perry will handle kicking duties.
"I have been real pleased with our senior leadership," Hayles said. "This is the most disciplined group I have ever had."
Cathedral High head football coach Craig Beesley experienced the playoffs as a player at Cathedral, but has yet to do so as a coach.
Beesley took over as head coach from his father, Ken, in 2007. His Green Wave teams just missed out on the playoffs the past two years.
"Our goal is to get some early success, get on a roll and build off of that," Beesley said. "We're inexperienced, but we have a lot of juniors and seniors."
Beesley is going from the spread offense to the option.
"We're going to more of a short game and want to try and control the game more this year," he said. "We've changed the blocking schemes and the guys are adjusting well to it."
At quarterback is senior Dylan White (6-0, 170).
Running backs are sophomore TaDarrius Ealy (5-8, 155), sophomore Daniel Huffines (5-8, 150) and senior Charles Lee (6-2, 175).
Senior Hunter Foster (5-8, 145) and senior Aaron White (5-8, 165) are the wide receivers.
The offensive line consists of junior Matthew Golden (6-7, 240), sophomore Josh Callaway (6-1, 235), senior Michael Roboski (6-3, 250), junior Adam Kaiser (6-0, 185) and senior Cameron Horton(5-11, 200).
On the defensive line are senior Elliot McCann (5-8, 175), Golden and Callaway.
Linebackers are Foster, Kaiser, senior Cole Mann and Ealy.
Defensive backs are Lee, White and Huffines.
Dylan White will handle the punting, while Mann will do the kicking.
Others seeing action are sophomore MacArthur Doss, junior Will Jones, junior Rudy Lazarus, freshman Dakota Vaughan, junior Tyler Jordan and sophomore Caleb Upton.
Trinity Episcopal drops down in classification, but certainly not in talent as the Saints appear to be the team to beat in their district, as well as one of the favorites to win state.
Senior R.J. Fleming (5-9, 170)returns at running back, while junior quarterback Giovanni Dent (6-0, 180) is a dual threat behind center.
Junior Kent King will also see time carrying the ball.
Fleming is being recruited by Northwestern State and Southeastern Louisiana.
Senior Brandon Daggs (5-5, 150) will see time running and catching the ball.
"This is the most speed we have ever had," said Trinity coach David King. "This team reminds me of the 2003 team. We just have to stay away from injuries, which hurt us last year.
King has also been impressed with the play of his offensive line, led by senior Deacon Newman (5-10, 215).
Junior Dylan Pressgrove (6-1, 185), junior Chase Patrick (5-9, 165) and sophomore Chance Fenn (5-8, 195) are also on the line.
The defensive line is anchored by senior Matthew Rymer (6-2, 225).
"Matthew is a big-time player," King said.
Senior Chas Moroney returns as a scoring threat as a kicker.
"Chas is a great kicker and he makes a difference in field position," King said.
Trinity opens its season Friday at Prairie View in Bastrop.
