Competing in the Baseline League is always a challenge, but coach Stevens likes his team’s chances this year. “ [We have a] very good and experienced defensive unit, solid and experienced offensive line, [an overall] great senior group,” he told Scorebook Live California. “[Our] team strength is the best it has been in the last four years. [We’re] looking to compete for a league title and make a deeper run in the playoffs this season.”
