Reedley returns five starters (3 on offense; 2 on defense) from the 2010 team and this year they've added some very talented youngsters to the mix to help them rebound.
QB Mike Weed will be the trigger-man for the Reedley offensive attack and he will be joined in the backfield by Joshua Andrews, a running back with the size and speed to be a threat as a runner both in-between the tackles as well as on the edge.
Carl Robinson is the speed guy, but he too has enough size and vision to be a threat inside as well.
TE Jamel Turner and freshman WR Camron Scott are also weapons at Weed's disposal.
Along the offensive line, Luke Taylor leads the way. He's an explosive blocker and because he hovers right around 6-feet tall he uses leverage to his advantage.
Taylor is also a star in the classroom.
The other young man up front with next-level abilities is Nate Gray, a 6'1", 290-pounder, who is an outstanding run-blocker.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Tigers are loaded with talented prospects including DT Thurman Byrd who is strong at the point of attack and can provide a nice push in the pass-rush.
At linebacker, Venson Marcellon and Eric Sykes are two players with D-1 abilities and both can fit into any defensive system.
At the corner spots, Reedley has four players they feel comfortable with -- Chaz Majors, Matt Trejo, Chris McGee and Jerry Bellot -- and at safety Kennar Johnson and Jean Bellot are players to keep an eye on as well.
Last week, Reedley began the season with a tough 41-33 loss to Foothill and this coming Saturday they will head on the road to take on College of San Mateo.
