Projected order of finish:

  1. Mayfair – Mike Fitch
  2. La Mirada – Mike Moschetti
  3. Norwalk – Jesse Ceniceros
  4. Bellflower – Derrick Brown
  5. Cerritos – Chad Reed
  6. Glenn – Ray Neimann
  7. Artesia – Joseph Veach

Mayfair lost some offensive talent, but Aaron Brown and Jerry Smith will still be able to handle the running back duties.

Bryan Kvapil and Marcus Harden will be leading a stingy defense that held West Covina in the semifinals.

Even though La Mirada lost talent to graduation, they should be regrouped by the time Suburban League play begins.

With limited experience last year, look for Andy Gramajo and Reuben Poncedeleon to have breakout seasons on both sides of the ball.

With Billy Moore and Elijah Penney graduated, Norwalk will ask Rashad Penney and Jon Armas to run the ball.

Billy Rogers and Gus Guzman will anchor the linebacker corp for the Vikings.

Looking to improve from its fourth place finish, Bellflower does have some defensive players that will turn heads. Free Safety Isaac Lee will captain an up and coming defense. Keep an eye on Jason Salasulu on the defensive line.

Offensively, Dijon Barnes and Travis Newberry will provide some punch to the Buccaneers.

Last season, Cerritos lost the coin toss for a playoff spot.

The Dons do have a little talent with quarterback Bo Nelson handling the signal calling. Branden Wilson will play ironman football as he will play running back and defensive line.

Head Coach Ray Niemann feels that Glenn could make a run for the playoffs. With another year to learn Niemann’s system, the Eagles do return running back Steven Reed and quarterback Anthony Escobar.

Not smelling the playoffs since 2008, Artesia looks to begin its upward climb to a possible playoff birth.

Jeremy Gaskin and Francisco Galan return to try and lead the Pioneers on the offensive side of the ball.
