OUTLOOK

After returning only six starters, Orange Lutheran has a long road ahead to repeat its performances of the past two years. Its strength is the skill positions with Crawford and Smith, but it will have new offensive and defensive lines as well as new linebackers. Under Kunau, however, no team can be counted out. Heading into its fourth season as coach, Kunau knows how to turn a group of inexperienced players into a sophisticated unit. After finishing 5-5 in 1993, the Lancers reached the Southern Section Division X final the next two seasons.
