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.

    RHP Chris Archer's primary problem Sunday, as in much of September, was a lack of slider command. When he can't throw it where he wants, and doesn't have the confidence in the changeup to throw it often, he can't win with just his fastball.
