Season Outlook

Back to Top

Mission Hills had a terrific 2007 season, making it all the way to the San Diego Section D-II final, losing to eventual CIF State D-II Champ, Oceanside. What's their reward? A move to the extremely competitive Avocado League. While that may normally be reason for excitement, as the program grows, the 2008 Grizzlies only return 6 starters. They'll be relying heavily on the leadership of returning QB DJ Zapata. One thing that has Coach Hauser optimistic is the level of success that his players have enjoyed at the lower levels. We shall see if that translates to varsity success.
