OUTLOOK

Craven has led the Mariners to the playoffs 21 times in 24 years. This season should make it 22 of 25. If the untested senior, Wikle, can give the Mariners solid play at quarterback, they could win their 14th league title in Craven's tenure. "He's a hard-working, smart kid, but we're still holding our breath because we're not sure how he'll handle the pressure," Craven said.
