2018 IN REVIEW

12-3, (4-1, 2nd place in Ocean League), Division 7 Southern Section champions

HEAD COACH

Jahmal Wright is entering his 11th season as Culver City’s head coach.

TOP PLAYERS

Zevi Eckhaus – QB Jr. 6-0 200

Makai Cope – WR, DB Jr. 6-2 195

Khary Crump – DB, WR Sr. 5-11 180

Richard Farias – DL, OL, LB Sr. 6-0 250

Isaiah Williams – LB Sr. 6-0 165

THREE TO SEE

Zevi Eckhaus – QB

Eckhaus is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in Southern California. He was an all-CIF selection as a sophomore after throwing 50 touchdown passes in 2018.

Khary Crump – DB

Crump is a baller and will lead the Centaur secondary in 2019. He had four INTs last season including this gem:

Isaiah Williams – LB

He’ll be tasked with replacing all-CIF linebacker Cortez Wright. Williams made 87 tackles in 2018.

OUTLOOK

Culver City lost A LOT of talent from its Division 7 section championship team last year, but they’ll be competitive in Division 5 because of Eckhaus. High-level quarterback play gives any team a shot.

Makai Cope, a Venice transfer, will be Eckhaus’ main target. Isaiah Williams will anchor the defense.

The Centaurs should finish second to Lawndale again in the Ocean League and then win a few playoff games.
