OUTLOOK

Though they struggled most of last season, the Saxons are optimistic they can play much better and earn a playoff berth. Unlikely? Who knows in this league. One of Loara’s strengths, however, is its massive offensive line, which will have some impact. Bengochea, Armando Contreras are expected to carry the load, but the Saxons’ big problem is inexperience on offense. On defense, they have all-league defensive end Wright, along with Crucil, Kilburn, Rodriguez and the talented Peoples.
