THREE TO SEE
Rocco Parrish, quarterback
Knows offense well, good vision with plenty of targets out wide.
Dominik Sanchez, linebacker
Returning all-league selection. Leads a physical linebacker corps.
Diego Suevas, running back
Dynamic power back. Reliable ball carrier. Strong offensive line will help him build on last season.
Grandview has steadily improved since back-to-back winless seasons in league play four years ago. Last year, it was one or two league wins away from a shot at the CWAC crossover. And this year, the Greyhounds boast a physical defense that starts with an experienced front and is bolstered by a talented linebacker corps, headlined by returning all-league selection Dominik Sanchez.
Offensively, the Greyhounds are led by the senior tandem of quarterback Rocco Parrish and wideout James Barrienttes, and an offense welcoming new, albeit talented, faces. Expect Grandview to hit its stride after the first few games, which could prove favorable in a CWAC that grants the top-three from each division a shot at the league crossover this season.
