Warrington led the team in receiving from the slot position with 50 catches for 674 yards and seven touchdowns.

“There's a lot of good energy,” Warrington said of fall practice. “We just jumped straight into practice and we have a better attitude throughout the whole team.”

The offensive line has plenty of experience, anchored around Hunter Baskett, a three-year starter, and Tristen Hill, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound junior.

Veteran head coach Mark Ryan has stepped into the defensive coordinator role after leaving Centennial, where health issues kept him away from the game much of last year.

“Mark plays a lot of 4-3, three-man front — a lot of situational stuff,” coach Ty Prestidge said. “Our kids have really enjoyed that, and you play more people, too.”

Senior Tucker Calmus, a third-year starter, has shifted from linebacker to defensive end, a move the coaches are excited about. Jared Chance is a third-year starter at defensive tackle.

Irwins, Cody Beal and Brody Feldman are in the mix at linebacker, and experienced players like Steven Fruit and Andrew Madison are back in the secondary.
