 Team: J.P. McCaskey

Classification: 6A

Head Coach: Eric Spencer (0-0)

A weathervane of sorts in Section One, the Red Tornado often serves as an indicator of the section’s potency. When McCaskey plays well, the section looks formidable. When it doesn’t, the L-L terrain proves to be, at best, inconsistent.

That said, a new voice and new approach this season could give Jathan Gonzalez and company a better chance at equal footing. Gonzalez split reps at quarterback last season, tossing a pair of touchdowns to go with 330 yards passing. Juanya Gonzalez, meanwhile, is the top returning receiver with just seven receptions in 2015, albeit at eighteen yards per catch.

Ultimately, how soon the players adapt to Spencer’s teachings will dictate just how much havoc the Tornado will inflict on the 2016 landscape.
