Others to watch: OL Caleb Aaberg, Jr., (6-0, 169); TE Bolt; WR Clark; WR/DB Abi Fajardo, Sr., (5-11, 164); QB Ryan Fassler, Jr., (5-11, 162); TE/LB Elijah Hoefer, So., (5-11, 180); RB Joey Hurtado; RB/LB Diego Magana, Sr., (5-9, 180); WR/DB Miguel Pedroza, Jr., (5-8, 119); OL/DL Drasen Reade, Sr., (5-7, 225); OL/DL Tyler Renollet, Jr., (6-2, 255); QB Mason Schutt, So., (6-4, 183).

Quick hits

* While Glossen is listed above as starter, Sonnichsen said Fassler and Schutt will also see playing time. Glossen will be the Wildcat formation QB, while the other two will run the pro-set formation.

* One of the biggest keys will be Anderson, who has rushed for more than 1,000 yards each of the last two seasons

* Peterson, an all-state player last season, will lead the defense. His twin sister, Helen, is one of the best soccer players ever at Prosser.

* The Mustangs are never afraid to play up. Their season opener tonight at home against Kamiakin -- last season's Class 3A state runner-up -- is testimony to that.

Outlook

Most teams would be worried with just three starters returning on offense. But this is Prosser, which for years has always reloaded rather than rebuilt.

Don't expect anything less this season.
