The 15-5A race
Front-runner: Westlake. This shapes up as coach Darren Allman’s best team in his five years with the Chaparrals.

He will be aided by two quality running backs, Alex Chavez and Ben Slaughter. The Chaps will have no trouble piling up points, but the strength of the team is an experienced defense that includes all-state-caliber players such as linebackers Hudson Hall and Breckyn Hager.
