A daily spring preview

of every football program

in the county.

Cambridge Christian

Coach: Rick Shears (fourth season, 16-15)

Last season: 6-4 (3-2

in district)

District: Class B, District 6 (Bradenton Christian, Bradenton Prep, Calvary Christian, Keswick Christian, Out-of-Door Academy)

Key losses: RB Taylor Cabral, FB Eric Shears,

OL/DL Jake Hunter

Who's back: RB Micah Lewis, Sr.; QB Etienne Turner, Jr.; CB/WR Ryan Campbell, Sr.

What's new: With the losses of Cabral, the county's leading rusher, and Shears, Cabral's lead blocker, the Lancers this spring are moving from primarily a power-I formation to a split-back veer option offense.

Audible: "We have a quarterback (Turner) who can run as well as throw, so we want to use his athleticism." — Shears

Did you know?: Etienne Turner's father, John, is the team's unofficial "waterboy," and he climbed Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain, two years ago.
