RETURNING

Offense – 4. Defense – 5.

TOP OFFENSIVE PLAYERS

OL Dimitri Fuentes 5-9, 275, jr.

WR Jacob Setterberg 5-10, 165, sr.

RB Juni Harris 5-8, 150, sr.

DL Jacob Hennessey 6-1, 218, sr.

DL Jeremiah Satberry 6-0, 190, sr.

THREE TO SEE

Juni Harris, running back/defensive back

Had three interceptions last season while also scoring touchdowns rushing, receiving, and punt returning.

James Johnson, wide receiver

The leading receiver from last season averaged 20.5 yards per catch and four touchdowns.

Ethen Bishop, defensive back

An All-CIF candidate; had 100 tackles, 2 interceptions, and 2 forced fumbles in 2018.

OUTLOOK

The Eagles two losses in 2018 came against the Division 2 champions and the Division 1 runner-up. A strong returning core should see lots of success in 2019.

Granite Hills loses Chris Ostreng who did it all as the quarterback last season. A veteran receiving group should help Justus McComb as he takes over.

The Grossmont – Hills League looks strong again, with Granite Hills likely battling with Steele Canyon for 2nd place.
