Mayfair will very much be in the mix for a Division 5 championship. They have solid players all over the field with a few great ones sprinkled in.
This is the most talented team coach Bedell has had in his five years at Mayfair, he told Scorebook Live California. If they can get consistent quarterback play, the Monsoons will be one of the favorites for the division crown.
