2007 Team Insider: College Park Cavaliers

Travis Keating is expected to lead the team

The Cavaliers amazed everybody across the state last season as they totaled a 5-5 mark but more importantly managed to fit themselves into a playoff spot. The first round was not very kind to them as they lost to Klein Forest, but making the playoffs in year one was a huge confidence boost and let everybody else know that Coach Carson is back and the Cavaliers are not going anywhere but up!

The offensive game plan was to pound you down with the option attack but they were still able to get two 2nd team All-District wideouts and they are both back this year in SR WR Trey Diller and SR WR Cham King. QB Justin Hay did a good job of managing the troops last year and now there will be a two quarterback system unless one steps up and takes the job for good. QB Josh Parsons is a very athletic kid and should provide a few great plays on the ground for the Cavs. QB Chris Brennan will also be in the mix and is a little more of a thower. Coach Carson has used this system before while at Eisenhower and understand exactly how to use both quarterbacks to better the offense as a whole. The main clock chewer last year FB David Crittenden as he had over 850 yards last season with two individual games of over 200. SR TB Derrick Williams also returns to the backfield from last season. The offensive line will be led by two returning starts in SR OL Troy Balzer (2nd team All-District) and SR OL Collin Williamson.

The defensive front will lead the charge this year for the Cavs. Any one of the front four this season could be the top player. SR DT Robert Gilmore was 2nd team All-District last year and will man the middle with SR DT Trevor Mock who made a key play in OT last year vs Conroe to secure the victory and playoff berth. On the ends will be SR DE Kevin Fenter DE Josh Woods. SR LB Nick Bendiz and LB Stephen Rains are both returners and should benefit from the very strong defensive line. Although the two cornerbacks will have to be new faces for the Cavs this year they return both safeties in SR S Travis Keating and SR S Shaun Kuoni (2nd team All-District).

Besides Lufkin being in first and Magnolia being in last this district could look like anything in the middle by the time the end of the regular season rolls around. College Park should avoid the sophomore slump and once again be in the playoffs in the end. Unfortunately for the Cavs they will most likely be playing a very high quality opponent in Klein Forest or Klein Oak in the first round.
