Last Season: Silver ran away with this district. They were able to get into the playoffs. Santa Teresa also got in but they finished up with a 5-6 overall record. Deming had a hard '06 only winning 1 game.
Predicted Order of Finish
2. Santa Teresa
Silver: Silver has a very up and down year in 2006. They started out really well but faded towards the end of the season. With all that being said they return a ton of talent and are ready to put together a complete season this year. RB Luke Villalba is a tiny guy on the field but he plays huge as well. He is arguably one of the most underrated RB's in the state. QB Gabe Britton is ready for a huge senior season. As a junior the talented signal caller threw for over 1300 yards and also ran in 6 touchdowns. He is a dual threat type kid and can really be special this season. On the defensive side of the ball Marcus Natera is the real deal.
Santa Teresa: Last season they were a .500 ball club. They really were never able to put a string on games together to get a win streak going. They finished up 5-6 and losing in the 1st round of the state playoffs. This season they should be ready to take that next step. They return a ton of letterman from last years squad which should help them.
Deming: Deming had a real hard '06 season only being able to win one game. In order for them to be able to rebound they have to really figure out the offense. Last season they were only able to score a total of 83 points on the season.
Offensive Player of the Year: Gabe Britton QB Silver
