2018 IN REVIEW

12-1, first place in Mountain Pass League, Division 3 semifinalist (lost 27-3 to Sierra Canyon)

COACHING RESUME

Jason McMains is entering his first season as head coach.

TOP PLAYERS

RB/LB AJ Porter –  Jr. 6-1, 220

RB/LB Elijah Robinson – Sr. 6-2, 230

WR/DB Andrew Brooks – Sr. 5-7, 145

RB/DB Malik Fredrick – Jr. 5-11, 170

FB/LB Angel Munoz – Sr. 6-0, 180

THREE TO SEE

AJ Porter – RB

Rushed for 912 yards and 16 TDs as a sophomore

Elijah Robinson – LB

Recorded 85 tackles and two interceptions last season

Andrew Brooks – WR

Rushed for 590 yards and seven TDs in 2018

OUTLOOK

Jason McMains took over for Eric Zomalt as head coach in the offseason. Zomalt led the Hawks to three section championships and one state title in his nine seasons.

The Hawks must replace their quarterback, but return two very capable rushers in AJ Porter and Andrew Brooks. We’ll know a lot more about how McMains wants his team to play after their August 30 opener vs. Palm Springs.
