SW’s future looks bright

He’s just a sophomore, but Leo Holsey will be entering his third season as the Sweetwater football team’s quarterback next year. If he makes as much improvement in his junior season as he did this year, he may hold a lot of passing records by the time he graduates.
Darian Carr, a junior receiver, emerged as a big-time weapon also with a 1,000-yard season, averaging 24 yards per catch prior to the playoff loss to Lubbock Estacado. And there’s the RB combo of Cedric Brown and Blake Scott, who totalled just under 900 yards on the ground. Scott is a junior and Brown, the starter, is a sophomore. The offensive line has more than a few returning players as well in Rylen Moncada, Jeremy Le, Omar Rico, Ely Barrera and Skyler Pulattie plus H-backs Danner Foust and Krystian Gomez.
The defense will lose its top tackler, Jesse Morales, but returns its second-leading tackler Harrison Foster at safety. Also back next year are linebackers Cade Needham, Seth Garcia, Ethan Brockman and Carlos Longoria and the secondary also returns Sebastian Gonzales, Ayden Rosas and Joe Angel Reyna and J.C. Longoria.
