2010 notes: Vento, who takes over as coach, expects a stronger team, thanks to the experience of eight offensive and seven defensive starters returning. RB Baca (800 yards rushing) is an all-around athlete and a member of the Eagles' bronze-medal winning 4x100 relay team at the state meet in 2009. QB Alvarado and TE Turnbow are also important to Van Horn's offense.
