BOULDER CITY

2013 record: 4-6 (2-3 Sunrise League, fourth)

Outlook: Boulder City secured the last playoff spot in the Sunrise last season before falling 62-7 to eventual state champion Faith Lutheran in the first round.

The Eagles, who will be looking for their third consecutive playoff appearance, return starting quarterback, Trenton Carmel, along with six other offensive starters.

Brooks Roe appears to be the go-to-guy this season, as he led the team in sacks and receiving a season ago.

The team will have to replace linebacker Dillon Prach, who led the team with 88 tackles, and their top two offensive scorers in Sam Woodbury and Xavier Steel.

“We will compete on every down,” coach Alex Kazel said. “We will have a physical, disciplined and unselfish approach to the game of football.”
