A daily spring preview of every football program in the county


Coach: Phil Hayford (31st season, 184-109)

Last season: 6-4

District: Independent

Key losses: RB/DL Toms Bernhards-Callahan, WR/DL Jasreet Birk, OL/DB Evan Jerome, OL/DL Stephen Mandula, OL/LB Rob Peck, RB/DB Jack Schroeder, WR/DB Cody Taffet

Who's back: RB/DL Alex Drexler, OL/DL Blake Elia, RB/DB Jules Jouffroy, OL/DL Luke Nunnelly, RB/LB Dom Reatini, RB/LB Harrison Settle, OL/LB Tyler Shenkman, QB/DL Hunter Tremaine, RB/DB Phil Tylman

What's new: The Chargers running game takes a hit with the graduation of Schroeder and Bernhards-Callahan. Tremaine returns at quarterback and is a dual threat; last season he ran for 1,092 yards and threw for 692. Settle will get some carries but will be counted on more as a linebacker after registering a team-high 113 tackles last season. The offensive line returns four who had significant playing time in 2008. Hayford is moving Shenkman and Reatini from the defensive line to linebacker to shore up that unit.

Audible: "We're lacking depth and some size, but those are two things we'll always have to deal with. I thought we did a good job of filling some holes this spring, especially in the defensive backfield and offensive line." — Hayford

Did you know? The Chargers have three upperclassmen — Tyler Clingman, Tyler Larson and Drayton Neeley — who came out for football this spring after not playing last season.

    Lightning Strikes

    BRANDON — No one is engraving the Stanley Cup. No one has begun stuffing the league MVP ballot box for Nikita Kucherov.
