2016-17 Western Flag Football Capsule Preview


Head coach: Henry Jackson, first season

2015-16 record: 0-18 (0-10 Sunset, sixth)

Returning starters: One

Top players: RB Fabray Elam (Sr.), LB Samaiya Hall (So.), RB Sierra Biddle (So.), WR Ruby Sheppard (Fr.), CB Brenda Hernandez (Sr.)

Outlook: Jackson takes over a team that returns just one starter after struggling last season.

“Although we have a very young team, our expectations are high,” Jackson said. “We are going to build on the excitement and enthusiasm of our first-year players and their eagerness to learn the new system.

“Our goal is to make a run at a conference title and secure a spot in the playoffs. We look to be the darkhorse in the conference and surprise a lot of teams who may be underestimating us.”
