OFFENSE 

After a bumpy 2017 campaign, the Broncos of Mustang have regrouped and head coach Jeremy Dombek is ready to get the program back to their winning ways.

“Five and five and missing the playoffs is not what we have been accustomed to here,” said coach Dombek. “Time to get back on track!” 

The offensive unit will feature several guys capable of making big plays, but their inexperience at the varsity level is a point of concern. However, coach Dombek is confident these guys can get it done. Dawson McKinney (5-11, 175, Sr.) did see some action last year catching 11 passes for 91 yards and a touchdown. McKinney is expected to be one of the leaders for the offense this season. Running back Chaz Meadows (5-7, 165, Sr.) also saw action in 2017 rushing for 134 yards on 24 carries. His increased production will help this offense get out of the blocks. The offensive line may be the strength of the team this season.

“We feel we have some weapons on offense, but the offensive line will be a strong point,” said Dombek. 

Anthony Elrod (6-4, 290, Sr.) and Kantrell Webb (6-3, 255, Sr.) bring size and excellent technique to the dance. Look for a few younger linemen to step up this season as Elrod and Webb lead a group of hungry offensive linemen into battle. 

Newly hired assistant coach Aso Pogi takes over as offensive coordinator.

DEFENSE 

With nine returning starters to the defensive side of the ball, expectations are high for the Broncos defensive unit. 

“We have high expectations on the defensive side of the ball,” said Dombek. “We started a lot of young kids who are more mature physically and mentally going into this season.” 

Senior defensive back Dominik Venegas (6-2, 170) accounted for 35 tackles and three interceptions a year ago and his return to the defense gives the coaching staff confidence when they need to match-up one on one. As will the return of Liam Krivanek (6-1, 190, Jr.). Last year Krivanek recorded 82 tackles in only seven games. Look for this heavy hitting defensive back to make a big impact this season. Kahri Brown (5-10, 165, Jr.) joins Krivanek and Venegas in the backfield where he recorded 44 tackles and a pick in 2017 as a sophomore. The defensive line features Justin Wardlaw (6-4, 290, Sr.) in the middle. The big man had 60 tackles with a sack as a junior. Outside linebackers Brayden Jarman (5-9, 170, Jr.) and Blain Helling (5-10, 175, Sr.) are as productive a pair as you can hope for at linebacker. Jarman had 37 tackles and a sack last season, while Helling grabbed 84 tackles with three sacks. Both guys will see a lot of action in the 3-4 scheme Mustang will run this season.
