Much of La Quinta's success or failure will depend on how well Dawkins performs. Valko expects Dawkins to carry the ball 25 to 30 times a game and be an integral part of the defense from his linebacker spot. Last year, Dawkins played nine defensive positions. With 15 player defections over the summer, La Quinta will be thin with only 25 players on varsity. "Fortunately, all of the talent is still here," Valko said. A lot of the talent is on defense, especially on the line.
