No 1 San Joaquin Memorial Panthers (11-3) (3-2 CMAC) SECTION CHAMPIONS

The Panthers have the makings of a team that can challenge Bakersfield Christian or Tulare Western on Championship night. Junior QB Alec Trujillo should put up great numbers and have a big year. Senior Dashawn is a 240 lb running back/DB that is fast and strong that will run you over. Junior star Leonard Glass just transferred in from Hanford and Glass is good and a playmaker. He will never come off the field at running back/DB and already has an offer from Nevada. Sophomore WR Jalen McMillan will be the next star at 6’2, 180 lbs. He is big, fast and athletic. Leading to the offensive line will be junior Konner Gomes, who will play left tackle at 6’4 270 lbs and senior Jorge Escalante, who transferred in from Dos Palos and this offensive lineman will be a force up front for the Panthers at 6’5, 310 lbs. Leading the way on defense will be senior linebackers Zach Angelillo and Andrew Defendis.

No 2 Tulare Western Mustangs (11-2) (4-1 EYL)

The Mustangs are loaded on both sides of the ball with young talent and will challenge Tulare Union for EYL and also the division 3 championship. Senior RB David Alcantar could have a huge year for the Mustangs. The new QB will be sophomore Elijah Burrell who is 6’1 and has a 4.0 GPA. A star will be born with sophomore RB Tayrin Johnson who is reminding people of a young Dominique Dorsey who was the record breaking RB at Tulare Union. Keep an eye on the receivers with junior Keshon Butler and sophomore WR Nathan Marrowquin, because they are good. Leading the defense will be senior D-line Camryn Haynes.

No 3 Bakersfield Christian Eagles (10-2) (6-0 South Sequoia CHAMPIONS)

The defending champions are better this year and that’s not good news for division 3. The Eagles are big, physical, fast and many are transferring into the Eagle’s nest. Senior QB Braden Wingle is back after setting the Central Section single-season record with 4,392 passing yards with 46 touchdowns. Junior WR Alex Wallace, is Wingle’s favorite target and should have a huge year. Junior Keonte Glinton has transferred in from Ridgeview and will play in the secondary. Senior Devyon Miller returns from a knee injury that kept him out of play all of the last season. This kid is GOOD!

No 4 Tehachapi Warriors (7-6) (4-1 SYL TRI CHAMPIONS)

Steve Denman has retired after 35 years and the new head coach is Doug DeGeer. Doug’s goal is to keep the train on the track because the Warriors have a tremendous football program. The Warriors will be young on the offensive line and also on defense. Junior QB Chris Garcia returns and he will be good at running the Warriors offense. The senior leader at RB will be Connor Timm.

No 5 Madera Coyotes (6-6) (1-4 CMAC)

If there is a sleeper team in division 3, it could be the Coyotes. Throw out last year’s 0-10 record because this team is night and day better over last year’s team. The Coyotes are building a program and head coach Yosef Fares and his staff are doing a great job bringing weightlifting and toughness back. The Coyotes will be much stronger this year. Most everybody returns for the Coyotes. Making his first start at QB is junior Colt Nelson and the Coyotes will be a throwing machine. Last years QB Jerry Hernandez will move to wide receiver/FS Joazaih Vasquez could have a big year running the football. Sophomore kicker Brisa Meza is the only female kicker in the valley and Brisa is GOOD! The Coyotes play the toughest schedule in division 3.

The Coyotes X-factor is the Coyotes have to play in the tough CMAC and the only chance they can win a game is against Madera South. How long will Madera let Madera play in the CMAC?

No 6 Fresno High Warriors (6-6) (3-2 NYL)

The Warriors lost some major offense because of graduation. The Warriors will be big up front and leading the way is senior Arvell Rogers who is 6’2, 310 lbs. Fresno High has a new speedster with QB John L’huereux.

No 7 Independence Falcons (7-4) (4-1 SYL TRI CHAMPIONS)

The Falcons lost a ton to graduation so they will get better and better each week. They are not big to have some young speed. Senior leader at running back will be Braden Gordon. The Falcons have a very tough schedule.

11/3 Lost to Ridgeview Wolf Pack 35-14

11/9 Lost to Fresno High Warriors 26-22


No 8 Kingsburg Vikings (7-5) (2-3 CSL)

The Vikings could surprise some teams with a huge senior team. Junior RB Bo Jackson is bigger this year and will be a beast. Also returning at RB will be Nathan Gamble along with Cole Diaz at fullback. Senior QB Caleb Buendia will take over the offense. The receivers will be Tyler Hodges, back after the serious knee injury he suffered last season, Mark Contreras, Anthony Rodriguez and speedster sophomore Alfred Carpenter.
The O-line and D-line will be small but quick with Mauricio Santana, left guard, Zach Wilson, center Jacob Anaya, right guard Josh Chavez.

11/17 Lost to Bakersfield Christian Eagles 48-9


No 9 West Vikings (7-5) (3-3 SYL)

Plenty return from last year and the Vikings could shock some teams early. Senior QB Gabriel Salcido returns running the option. Sophomore RB Anthony Ramirez could have a big year. If the offensive line and defense come around then look for the Vikings to move up in the rankings.

No 10 Mt Whitney Pioneers (4-7) (3-3 WYL)

Last year the Pioneers were very streaky. They will be strong up front but will have plenty of young skilled players all over. Starting at QB will be Jaedyn Pineda and he is dangerous! Sophomore John Hadley who transferred in from Lindsay is good. Leading the way upfront will be junior John Banks. The running backs will junior WR/RB Zach Reza. The Pioneers have a tough schedule for a young team.

11/9 Lost to Madera Coyotes 76-62


No 11 Highland Scots (8-2) (3-1 SEYL TRI CHAMPIONS)

The Scots will be good if the defense steps up. The Scots offense will be more wide open with senior QB Cade Sakamoto running the offense along with Zeke Arambulo. The O-line and D-line will be good and leading the way is senior Josh Yubeta. Leading the defensive will be Cole Johnson at DB. One of the best players around is WR/CB Noah Ramirez.

11/9 Lost to Kingsburg Vikings 20-14


No 13 South Rebels (5-5) (3-1 SEYL TRI CHAMPIONS)

The 3-peat SEYL Champion Rebels might be down a bit but always has talent and speed. The offensive line will be new and they will want to pound it with senior Smash Mitchell.

11/9 Lost to Tehachapi Warriors 34-8


No 14 Golden Valley Bulldogs (3-7) (1-4 SYL)
The Bulldogs come in with plenty of players returning and they are looking to contend in the SYL. The entire offensive line is coming back. Junior QB Carl Jones takes over and he is electric! He could be the key for the Bulldogs making a nice playoff run. Leading the defense will be seniors Roberto Enriquez 6’2″ 265 lbs at D-line and Da’Vione Thomasson who will line up at DB and some receiver.

No 15 Hoover Patriots (2-8) (1-4 NYL)
Justin Nast takes over very late and he and his staff have the Patriots on the right track. The Patriots are a work in progress. They do have one of the fastest running backs with senior Tahj Hart and junior Jordan Daniels will start at QB. Jordan is a dual threat that might just be the fastest QB in the valley.
