Head coach: Eric Rolwing, third season
2012 record: 4-9-3 (3-6-3 I-A Sunrise, fourth)
Returning letter winners (starters): 11 (eight)
Top players: D Cesar Perez (Sr.), GK Gerardo Skewes (Jr.), MF Lester Izquierdo (Jr.), D Jose Morales (So.)
Outlook: A berth in the Division I-A Southern Region playoffs last season has energized the Cowboys, who could be set up for a return to the postseason.
“We’re returning eight starters from last year’s playoff run, so we’re hoping to be a player in the I-A state championship this season,” Rolwing said. “Time will tell.”
