Outlook: Sierra Vista will be seeing a lot of new teams this season as it was moved to Division I-A with the new realignment.
The Mountain Lions struggled last season, but return 21 total letterme.
Maliek Broady stands out on both sides as a running back and linebacker. He led the team in rushing last season and was fourth in tackles.
Safety Javion Hunt finished second in tackles last season and also had four interceptions.
Coach Foss returns several skill players, but has an inexperienced line. He looks to “make the playoffs and advance.”
