Nick Baiz takes over at Etiwanda. Here’s an inside look at the 2019 Eagles.
2018 IN REVIEW
4-6 (1-4, 4th place in Baseline League)
Nick Baiz, former Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga head coach, was hired as Etiwanda’s new head coach in February.
Brandon Patterson QB Jr. 5-9 150
Jordan Williams WR, DB So. 6-1 180.
Devanti Dillard WR Sr. 6-2 195
Rafael Outley CB Sr. 5-7 160
THREE TO SEE
Brandon Patterson QB
Threw for 1,490 yards and 15 TDs as a sophomore last season.
Jordan Williams WR
Contributed on both sides of the ball for the Eagles as a freshman in 2018.
Devanti Dillard WR
Patterson’s favorite target. He caught four touchdowns last season.
Nick Baiz is a head coach with plenty of experience and returning a quarterback is always a good thing.
Etiwanda lost a few transfers though and the Baseline League won’t get any easier this year with Damien hiring Matt Bechtel as head coach and Los Osos returning star quarterback Donovan Smith; and those were the two other 1-4 teams last season.
It’s a tough league and Etiwanda will struggle to get out of the bottom half in year one of Baiz’s tenure.
