Jaguars want to be curt with offenses




Last season: 8-3 (Won Beach Bowl, 28-24, over Palomar)


Head coach: ED CARBERRY (13th year)


2018: The Jaguars won four of their first five games on the field, then was awarded a Week 4 victory over Fullerton later in the season. Southwestern also defeated all three San Diego County opponents. SWC went 2-3 in the National Division Southern League.



Sophomore running back DeAndre Daniels, out of St. Augustine, rushed for over 1,000 yards last season and scored 15 touchdowns. Freshman running back Keylan Chapman from Desoto (Texas) High, a bounce-back from Oregon. Josh Owen, a transfer from Riverside out of Waco, Texas, figures to get the majority of the snaps but 6-foot-7 signall caller, Cary Enos, of Duncan, S.C., set to take about one-third of the reps in Carberry’s two-QB system. Former Christian Patriot quarterback Brad Jeremiah could figure into the plans, as well. Former Monte Vista Monarch Christian De La Cruz, and Flavio Gonzales, Casa Grande (Pueblo, Ariz.), lead the offensive line. Sophomore wide receiver Matthew Linton, who caught 28 passes at Grossmont College last season, is going to be joined by former Southwest High star Tyler Saikon, and sophomore Paul Thompson, among others. The place-kicker is D.J. Del Fiero, out of Eastlake.


The Cougars will get the services of last year’s San Diego County prep defensive player of the year in former Eastlake Titan Josh McCurty. First-team all-league defensive tackle Andrew Schassa and defensive back Isaac Wright are the only returning starters on defense. Defensive Back Riley Havird, out of Grossmont High looks to be a part of the secondary. The punter is Cesar Macias, from Mar Vista. Former Granite Hills Eagle Justin McElligott may get opportunities to kick, as well.


In Sept., The Jaguars have just one home game, facing Palomar on the 14th. Grossmont College comes to DeVore Stadium on Oct. 26. The Jags get Riverside and Orange Coast at home in Nov.
