League: Class 4A Mountain
Head coach: Patrick Herbert, second season
2017 record: 7-6 (7-5 4A Sunset/seventh)
Returning lettermen: Six
Top athletes: Marshall Nelson, Mark Thuet, Manny Gegen, Jon Lai, Levon Grigoryan, Chase Kasday, Blake Kasday, Anthony Romaine, T.J. Faucher
Outlook: The Bengals return six lettermen from a team that qualified for the Sunset Region playoffs last year.
“The sky is the limit,” Herbert said. “There are players who have the combination of desire and athleticism that is ideal. The depth of the team is also a strength. The Bengals don’t lose much moving down the lineup.”
