SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - Mission Prep comes into this year looking to fill an enormous gap their former running back Patrick Laird left after graduating last year. The offense does return Patrick Miller, though he will not play the quarterback position, but rather he will make the transition to wide receiver. Bryce Fledderman is expected to take over at the quarterback position.
"We lost quite a few seniors last year." Miller said. "A lot of guys need to step up and I think the younger guys have taken those roles."
No Central Coast football school had a deeper postseason run last year than Mission Prep. Finishing 11-3 last year, the Royals were C.I.F. runner ups.
"We have a lot of seniors that love to fly around and play." Mission Prep strong safety Chase Bourque said. "I'm really excited to play out there with my boys, we have a solid line up."
Mission opens regular play on August 29 against Christian high school.
