Here's another South Coast team on the rebound. The Diablos spent much of the early season near the top of the Orange County rankings but then ran into the Mater Dei buzz saw and never seemed to recover from a 42-7 whomping. This season, Mission Viejo will have to make do without league defensive MVP Matt Keneley (now a lineman at USC). The good news is that the Diablos still have some big boys on the offensive line, including Brown, LeClair and Winsor.
