De­fend­ing cham­pion: Lav­erne

Lav­erne went un­de­feated to win the Class B state cham­pi­onship last sea­son un­der the guid­ance of then second-year coach Chris Cayot. The Tigers got through Shattuck 40-34 in over­time. Both teams look to be on track to meet in the play­offs again.

Re­turn­ing stars:

Ihzan Castillo, WR/TE/DE, Lav­erne: The im­pos­ing 6-foot3, 200-pound re­ceiver and de­fen­sive end re­turns for his se­nior sea­son. He was an All-Dis­trict se­lec­tion last sea­son after record­ing 829 yards re­ceiv­ing on 28 catches.

Gatlin Good­son, QB, Shattuck: The quar­ter­back helped Shattuck to the Class B state cham­pi­onship as a sopho­more last sea­son. The ex­pe­ri­enced Good­son should be a prob­lem for Class B de­fenses again.

Juan Dominguez, OL/DL, Turpin: The se­nior stands 6-foot, 250 pounds. He’ll add ex­pe­ri­ence and good size up front for a team with a brand new back­field. He also recorded eight sacks.

Big ques­tion: Can Lav­erne over­come in­ex­pe­ri­ence?

The de­fend­ing state cham­pi­ons are in­ex­pe­ri­enced along its of­fen­sive line, but strong at their skill po­si­tions. The champs will also have to re­place quar­ter­back Trey Allen, who was one of the top passers in the state last sea­son.
