Wyoming commit Gavin Beerup leads St. Bonaventure into the 2019 season. Here’s an inside look at the 2019 Seraphs.
2018 IN REVIEW
6-5 (1-3, 4th place in Marmonte League), Division 4 first round (lost 52-14 to Grace Brethren)
Tony Henney is entering his third season as St. Bonaventure’s head coach.

THREE TO SEE
Gavin Beerup QB
Beerup committed to Wyoming in the offseason. Despite his talent under center, he played wide receiver last season and also served as the backup to Kai Rojas. Beerup is a team player.
Nico Diaz SS
Made 75 tackles as a sophomore.
Justin Cantu RB
Rushed for 583 yards and five TDs in 2018.
Dropping to Division 5 will help St. Bonaventure come playoff time. The Marmonte League is always a grind and this season will be no different, but a fourth-place finish can still get them into the playoffs like it did last year.
Protecting QB Gavin Beerup will be the main priority. Coach Tony Henney will also hope to get a more favorable playoff matchup this season. Facing eventual state champion Grace Brethren in the first round of the playoffs last season was a bad stroke of luck.
