Head coach Tom Joseph of the Mesa Mountain View Toros was happy with his team's performance this spring.  An 8-4 record and a playoff appearance would be considered a successful season for most programs but at Mesa Mountain View success is judged by state championships. Recently Sports Illustrated picked Mountain View as the top high school sports program in the Arizona.

 

Regarding spring ball, head coach Tom Joseph said, "Spring camp was an opportunity for us to get back to fundamentals. Many of the players we know will be starters were busy with baseball and track." Coach Joseph lets any player go out for any position they want during spring ball. He and his staff do not determine positions until after two a days in August.  Joseph said the Toros are looking for more depth at the specialist positions, kicker and QB most notably.

Coach Joseph was very impressed with the hard work of his linemen in the off-season and during spring ball. "Depth at line is our strong point right now. We return 17 linemen from last season."

Last weekend, fifty-five representatives of the Mountain View football team traveled to Las Vegas to compete in the National Power Clean Championships. Teams from across the country participated and the Toros took first place.

 

Last fall Mountain View went 5-1 in league and had four losses by a combined total of nine points.  Look for a hungry group of Toros to use their experience in the trenches to reestablish themselves as a premiere program in the state this upcoming season.
