Head coach: Jesse Ortega
Third season at Chavez (9-12)
Last season: 0-9 overall, 0-6 SSL
Key players: Elijah Rangel, Sr., RB; Joey Salaz, Sr., OL; Carlos Macias, Sr., WR/DB; Rueben Cervantes, Sr., LB.
The offensive skill positions could bring some big-play pop to the field. No. 1 receiver Carlos Macias and second-year starting running back Elijah Rangel can both make plays in the passing game. Sophomore Cameron Huerta will get the nod at quarterback and the team likes his athleticism and arm strength.
The Titans went from a 9-3 team and D-IV Central Section semifinalist in 2017 to an 0-9 outfit last year. Regardless, the coaching staff likes the mix of returning players and fresh talent that entered the program this offseason. The hope is that Chavez returns to its winning ways.
