The Cash Clemans era opens at Florence, as the junior quarterback makes his first varsity start.
Florence coach Shawn Cluff said Clemans looked confident in the Gophers’ preseason scrimmage against Payson and he expects big things from him.
Helping Clemans’ growth will be the return of Andy Martinez, the top receiver in the South Region last year.
Estrella Foothills was a young team a year ago, with 12 sophomores on the varsity, and got better as the year went on. The Wolves return quarterback Franky Lynch and leading rusher Ryan Castro.
