THREE TO SEE

Sam Brown, quarterback / defensive end

Best QB in the league as a junior; accounted for 2,000 yards of offense and 22 TDs.

Briar Cameron, running back / linebacker

Cameron had 100+ tackles last season and will be out for blood in 2019.

Randy Haxton, center / defensive tackle

Big frame, fist team all-league center in 2018.

OUTLOOK

The Patriots took a second-place league finish behind 3A powerhouse Bellevue last season, and then went on to make a deep playoff run.

2019 will be a different story for a Liberty squad that only returns six total starters from last year’s group.

Among those returning, however, are first team all-league selections in QB Sam Brown and C Randy Haxton, who will offer some much-needed veteran support to this young Liberty team.
