10. Agua Fria — Several impact offensive starters return, including RB Jordan Green (1,196 rushing yards) and WR Marquice Paige (644 rec. yards, 803 rush yards). The defense has some holes to fill but another winning season is likely.
9. Peoria — It was a transition year for Panthers in 2012 as they suffered their first losing season since 2005, but several offensive pieces are in place for a turnaround season.
8. Tempe — Depth is an issue, but QB Emanuel Gant (pictured above) returns, as do top weapons Sebastian Watkins and Massiah Smith. With the addition of RB Kamron Johnson from Marcos de Niza, the Buffaloes should score points, but they must stop people on the other end.
Kamron Johnson, Jr., RB/DB, Tempe
Even though he was stuck behind Division I running back recruit Mauriece Lee at Marcos de Niza last season, Johnson made his touches count. He carried the ball 22 times for 266 yards (a 12.09 yards-per-carry average) with three touchdowns and caught 12 passes for 265 yards and three more scores. Johnson would have been a big part of the Padres’ offense this season, but he instead transferred to Tempe. The Buffaloes had a five-win turnaround last year, and with Johnson added to the trio of quarterback Emanuel Gant and wide receivers Sebastian Watkins and Massiah Smith, the expectations are even higher in 2013.
