THREE TO SEE
McKyle So’oto, linebacker
Led the Grizzlies with 102 tackles as a sophomore and also added 2 interceptions and a blocked field goal.
Quinton Hadnot, defensive back/wide receiver
Was the Grizzlies leading receiver and had 4 interceptions while also handling kick and punt return duties.
Jason Boyle, defensive back
89 tackles and an interception during a breakout sophomore season.
The Grizzlies made a deep run in the Division 1 playoffs last season, and return several key pieces on both sides of the ball.
Mission Hills may feature the best secondary in San Diego, and should make it very difficult on opposing passing attacks.
The Grizzlies have the talent and experience to win an excellent Avocado League that doesn’t have a consensus favorite.
