2018 IN REVIEW

4-6 (1-4, 4th place in Baseline League)

HEAD COACH

Nick Baiz, former Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga head coach, was hired as Etiwanda’s new head coach in February.

TOP PLAYERS

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.  

OUTLOOK

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.
