A 4-6 finish in 2006 is what the Alief Hastings team faces as they prepare for the fall of 2007. Returning only seven starters, the Fighting Bears are probably looking for players in key positions to step up to ensure team success.

Offensively, the Bears have a playmaker in running back Saheed Imoru. Imoru was effective rushing (535 yards, four touchdowns) and receiving (36 receptions). Offensive linemen Tim Shepherd and Will Mason will lead the line to open the holes for him.

Quarterback Jhvaughn Forde is the man behind center and his receiver targets are Ian Osei, Jared Davis, and newcomer Shaquille Tubman.

The Bears' defense returns three including top lineman prospect Ray Kibble. Alongside Kibble are Courtney Wilson and Jonathan Johnson. At the linebacker positions, David Christmas, Desmond Goodlow, and Troy Walker.

In the defensive backfield, the Bears have plenty of security with Darrelle Raven and Jeremiah Coffman. Sophomore Brian Thomas will also see time at the safety position. Coffman led the team last year with four interceptions. 

Hastings, despite losing a few skilled players, still has a number of guys in key positions returning. But depth on defense could pose a problem. Either way, look for Crump Stadium to be the battlegrounds for quite a few intense 18-5A games.
