2011 Team Preview: Mt. San Antonio

Mt. San Antonio finished the 2009 and 2010 seasons as both the State and National Champions and 2011 could very well end up with the same result. This year a talented group of prospects reside on the Mountie roster so here is a look at the top players and what to look for this fall...

In six years as the head coach at Mt. San Antonio, Bob Jastrab has posted a 62-13 record and this year, even though they only return four starters, the Mounties have a chance to three-peat as the State and National Champs.

Cameron Deen and Ted Launders battled it out in camp for the starting quarterback spot and if things hold true, it appears that Deen will be at the helm this fall.

Both are talented and accurate, so it will be interesting to watch which one sees the most reps this fall.

Christian Bobo returns at the running back position, but will be pushed all year by freshman Superior Reed.

Alonzo Agwuenu and Finau Lomu are the two players returning with the most experience at wideout, but also keep an eye out for Darrin Duncan.

Year in and year out, the Mounties are loaded along the lines and this year is no different.

Stan Hasiak was one of the most decorated offensive line recruits from the 2009 class, but ran into some problems at UCLA, so he's trying to find his way back to a four-year school with a solid season this fall.

Antonio Johnson and Junior Salt are talented sophomores who already have D-1 schools showing them attention and Tim Maka and Edward Fusi are freshman who will garner looks as well.

Like the offensive line, the defensive line is loaded with talent.

Koliniasi Leota is a defensive end with outstanding potential along with defensive tackles Peter Nonu and Lino Tuifalasai.

Mt. San Antonio is very young at linebacker, but Richard Thorpe is a player to keep an eye on.

In the secondary, safety Shelton Miles, an Idaho bounceback, and CB Geoff Vaughns are players who are garnering attention from four-year coaches.

The kicking game is in good hands with P Daniel Colby and K Travis Coons.

Last weekend the Mounties got off to a good start, posting 626 yards of offense in a 51-21 win over Victor Valley.

On Saturday, Mt. San Antonio will travel to face College of the Canyons.
