Paint Creek Pirates
Coach: Cody Blair.
Lettermen R/L: 5/1.
2009: 0-10/0-4 district. Key loss: J.J. Garcia.
Starters returning O/D: 5/5.
Players to watch: CB Jordan Adkins (5-10, 5.0), CB Hunter Hall, QB Andrew Matthies, CB Nathan Edwards, E Hunter Jordan, S Dalton Barnett.
Top sophomores: QB Rob Molina.
Other prospects: E River McTasney, E Blake Edwards.
2010 notes: Despite lots of returning experience, the move to Division I and a lack of depth will challenge the Pirates. If CB Adkins work ethic and dedication are infectious, this team could be a playoff darkhorse.
