Another line stud from coach Jon Huss' program, Mark has already committed to Oregon.
QB -- Rudy Carpenter (Westlake, Westlake Village) 6-2, 190, Sr.
Had two 500-yard games last season for Newbury Park, but he'll be on a more balanced team this year and probably will have to come out of some lopsided games so similar totals aren't likely.
RB -- Ryan Mole (Righetti, Santa Maria) 5-10, 185, Sr.
He's a legit big-time prospect with 4.47 speed in the 40. Rushed for 1,497 yards and caught 33 passes as a junior.
RB -- Aaron Ware (Oaks Christian, Westlake Village) 5-10, 175, Jr.
He's got great speed to the corner, but needs to run between the tackles better if he's to be among nation's ultra-elite next season.

Racked up 1,767 yards as a junior.
PK -- Victor Velasco (Santa Maria) 5-10, 160, Sr.

DB -- Terrail Lambert (St. Bonaventure, Ventura) 5-10, 175, Sr.
The Terrail Express won't be derailed with his combination of agility, speed and strength. He's known throughout the nation.
DB -- Charles Dillon (Hueneme, Oxnard) 6-1, 170, Sr.
Another second team all-county pick and might have recruitment that approaches Lambert in intensity.
DB -- Josh Pinkard (Hueneme, Oxnard) 6-0, 180, Sr.
Also will star for the Vikings as the QB on offense.
DB -- Chris Palmer (Santa Barbara) 5-10, 175, Sr.
A bright light in the bleakness of last year's 0-10 showing for the Dons was the emergence of Palmer as a speedy cover corner and all-around breakaway threat.
LB/RB/DB -- Joel Carty (Carpinteria) 6-0, 180, Sr.
He's the major returnee from the Warriors' 14-0 team that was No. 1 in the Div. IV state rankings.
RB/K -- Vinnie Freitas (Paso Robles) 6-2, 195, Sr.
Hard-charging player runs with a punishing style that seems to perfectly describe the Pac 5 League.

Caught 48 passes as a junior, averaged 35 yards per punt and was effective as a shut down corner.
QB/RB -- Kellen Moriarty (Dos Pueblos, Goleta) 6-0, 185, Jr.
Played WR last year with Shane Lopes still at QB, but looked so good as a QB in the spring that he was a ballboy at the EA Sports Elite 11 QB Camp. Note: Ballboys often get invited to the same camp as seniors.
QB/ATH -- Dane Hodgson (San Luis Obispo) 6-2, 175, Sr.
Clocked 11.0 seconds in the 100-meter dash during the track season.
