THREE TO SEE
Landon Amato, wide receiver
With the Jaguars’ top three 2018 pass catchers gone, he could be breakout star
Davian Iniguez, running back
Nobody standing in his way to becoming workhorse 1,000-yard rusher
Dante Maiuri, quarterback
DeSales transfer had nice debut (1,562 yards, 17 TDs) as sophomore
As much as the Jaguars celebrated a first accomplishment last season — their first 11-man state playoff victory — they lost plenty off a senior-heavy squad heading into 2019.
Their best defensive player (co-league MVP linebacker Colton Tinnin) graduated. So did top rusher Nate Dituri.
But the toughest one happened in the offseason when top playmaker Kobe Singleton (1,334 all-purpose yards at wide receiver; nine interceptions at defensive back) transferred to Chiawana.
If Maiuri (late-season knee injury) is healthy and takes another step in the Air Raid offense utilizing a new set of wide receivers, and the pressure-happy front seven, led by defensive ends Kaden Harrison and Owen Ritala, force turnovers, Tri-Cities Prep should be in position for a fourth consecutive state trip.
