Now that the regular season has come to an end, we at JCFootball.com have started to look at the top…
2011 Team Preview: Mesa
He will have some nice weapons at his disposal in running backs Michael Allen, Kelvin Pruitt and Terrance Anthony who should be the three headed monster for the Thunderbirds' rushing attack this fall.
When Sieczkowski drops back to pass, Slye Hardwick will be the main target along with some youngsters who have yet to establish themselves.
Up front, David Griffin is a D-1 caliber player who was a full-qualifier out of high school. He should get plenty of attention after the season as schools look to add a talented player with four years to play three.
C Bobby Gay and G Patali Sili have aspirations at the next level as well and both return as leaders along the offensive line.
On defense, Ed Atanoa was named the defensive team captain and he'll be in the middle with Preston Hamlett making plays from the outside.
DE Ulysses Aaron is the other defensive player to keep an eye on. With his 6'4", 260-pound frame, he could prove to be a big-time recruit before it's all said and done.
Mesa opened the season last week with a 49-2 win over the Arizona All-Stars and will kickoff league play this week with a tilt against Snow College on Saturday, September 3rd.
