Outlook: With 15 starters back from a state championship squad, first-year head coach Will Clark believes experience will be a key for Crest this season.
“We’ve got a lot of people who have been in a lot of battles for us the last few years, and that makes it easier,” said Clark, who was defensive coordinator last year for Mark Barnes. “The good thing is there aren’t too many changes. The terminology is the same, but when you have a new coach, you do have a difference in personal preference with plays and other things.”
