Head coach: Eric Rolwing, fourth season
2013 record: 9-7-1 (6-5-1 Sunrise, fourth)
Returning starters: Eight
Top athletes: GK Gerardo Skewes (Sr.), F Jose Morales (Jr.), D Omar Carranza (Sr.), D Lester Izquierdo (Sr.)
Outlook: Skewes was the Division I-A player of the year last year.
Morales, who had 12 goals and seven assists last year, should help lead the offense for the Cowboys, who return eight starters.
“This is a year that we have been building for since I arrived at Chaparral four years ago,” Rolwing said. “We are obviously expecting to be a major factor in the state championship this year.
“Our preseason schedule is the toughest in the state this year, and that schedule reflects the confidence I have in this team.”
