Head coach: David Torrez, second season
2014-15 record: 14-6 (11-5 Southeast, third)
Returning letter winners (starters): Nine (six)
Top players: WR Carolina Velasquez (Sr.), LB Brooklynne Fewer (Sr.), LB Alyssa Hildreth (Sr.), LB Carli Perkins (Sr.)
Outlook: Among the Gators nine returning letter winners are three linebackers in Fewer (126 tackles), Hildreth (117 tackles) and Perkins (65 tackles).
“We look to improve from last season with an emphasis on defense,” Torrez said. “With a strong linebacking corps returning, we expect to challenge offenses every game.”
Velasquez should be among the leaders on offense after catching 47 passes for 755 yards and 10 touchdowns last year.
“The ultimate goal is a championship, but many pieces still need to be figured out, and we will have to rely on unproven talent to do so,” Torrez said.
