David Mencarini - Quince Orchard

1) What are your expectations for the 2010 season?Our expectations never change from year to year. I expect this team will compete hard and continue the success of the previous 6 seasons2) How many returning starters (offense/defense) do you have coming back?Offense - 5 Defense - 53) What players should we be looking out for? Who do you think will make an impact on your team?QB Drew MurphyOL Michael ChiangDL Jarell BroxtonDL Jon StoeserLB Alex TwineDB Matt Sherman

4) Which player on your team (that nobody knows about) do you expect to have a great year and make a name for themselves? RB Mark Green LB Marcus Newby 5) What game are you most looking forward to this season? Why that game? Week 2 vs. Damascus. Not only is it a great rivalry and will have major post season implications but it is also Juvenile Diabetes Night. We are doing a fundraiser for juvenile diabetes between the 2 schools. We are selling game tshirts, The Battle for a Cure, between the schools. My oldest daugther was recently diagnosed with diabetes. I'm excited to raise awareness. 6) Any team out there that you feel will be strong this year - other than yourself? Who do you see as your top contenders? 

So many teams in the 3A West could have great seasons. Its a dogfight week in and week out.

7) Is there any one thing that happened this offseason, or at the end of last year that made you excited for this year?

You are only as good as your last game. Our last game was our only loss of the 2009 season in the 3A West Finals. That's more than enough motivation.

Marc Thomas - Sherwood
