Pride offense will count on youth

The Mountain Pointe football program has plenty of talent on the offensive side of the ball.

The one hang up - if you can even call it that - is the fact that only one of the main skill players is a senior.

Dillan Johnson, a running back who will see time at quarterback, is it.

Everyone else - including running back Thomas Warren, wide receiver Jalen Brown, quarterback Caleb Buck  - are juniors or sophomores.

It bodes well for the future, but a team that is coming off two straight semifinal appearances and ranked in the top five in most Division I preseason polls isn't focused on next year just yet.

The offensive line, while big and physical, has new starters in Jacob "Binky" Davis, Natrell Curtis and Kenny Lacy.

But the youthfulness and inexperience doesn't seem to be a concern.

"No because they have played a lot," offensive coordinator Eric Lauer said. "It won't be just one guy carrying the whole load. The future is bright."
