El Dorado senior Derek Stickney is a player to watch this season.

Kickoff '09: El Dorado Golden Hawks

OCVARSITY.COM

Last season record:

6-6, 4-1

Postseason:

2008, lost to La Habra, 23-14, second round of Southwest Division playoffs

Coach:

Shawn Racobs (1st year)

Outlook:

Jeff Bailey resigned to take the coaching job at Yorba Linda High. However, there shouldn’t be much concern of a drop-off. Derek Stickney anchors a veteran offensive line. Brock Dunn and Tesoro transfer Seth Davis will handle the ground game. Andres Ambuehl, who saw some time last season when Kane Wilson was injured, steps in a quarterback. All in all, look for the Golden Hawks to be in the mix for another league title.

Home stadium:

Valencia High

Factoid:

Racobs takes over after eight seasons as an assistant at Valencia High.

School record:

252-206-7
