OUTLOOK

Last season, the Sentinels advanced to the state semifinals for the 10th time in school history.

If this talented bunch does not advance past that juncture for the first time ever, it will be a disappointing ending for what many consider a state co-favorite.

Most of the championship pieces are in place — experienced lines (five of top six linemen return); dynamic skill-position athletes (especially Coalson, Devane, Egbuka in the receiving corps); and two linebacking standouts (Garcia, Lingenfelter) — to make a serious run at a 2A title.

If McDonald is as capable a first-year starting passer as he’s shown in offseason competitions, this could be the classification’s most exciting team to watch.
