THREE TO SEE
Ozzie Nicholas, linebacker
The leader of the Mavericks defense has racked up double digit scholarship offers and will be looking to repeat as a 1st Team All-CIF Selection.
Marshall Eucker, quarterback
His 2nd season as the varsity starter should provide experience for the Mavericks offense.
Trevor Gonzales, wide receiver
Should have a big year as he poses a mismatch for most defenders around the county.
If the offensive line can give them time, Gonzalez and Eucker could end up being one of the best pass-catching duos in the county.
Injuries derailed a playoff run last season, but enough key pieces return to envision the Mavericks making a championship appearance.
Nicholas, Nuschy, and Martinez will have to pick up the slack up front for an inexperienced secondary.
