5A Top 10: #5 La Cueva Bears

La Cueva is always one of the top programs in the entire state. They had somewhat of a down 2006 but they return really good talent and are ready to make another title run.

#5 La Cueva:  The Bears had somewhat of a down season by their standards in 2006 losing to Mayfield in the second round of the state playoffs.  They have to figure out how to replace two D1 linemen in Brett Kennedy and Michael Muniz, but they go into 2007 as the favorite.  On the line the return one of the better offensive lineman in the state in Steven Smith, on the defensive side of the ball lineman Pedrum Khodaie is expecting a monster senior season.  The Bears also feature one of the top players in the entire state in LB/FB Justin Dugger.  Also look out for big seasons from 6'1 junior.  They scrimmaged Highland last Thursday and won that make shift scrimmage by a score of two scores to none.  They will be tested early with a big matchup against Cibola during week 1.
