Outlook: The first thing one should know about the Warriors is that their 2-7 record from a season ago is deceiving. Although West Orange does not have near the firepower or star power it had in 2015 when it made the state semifinals, there are some exciting skill players on the Warriors roster, and a big part of how the team does this season will depend on how effectively it can get the ball to those playmakers in space.
The Warriors have a handful of very talented defenders, which will be important when they’re trying to slow Apopka or Wekiva. Speaking of Apopka and Wekiva, an improved Warriors team still has a tough road to travel to contend in a district this loaded.
Awesome alumni: Two former Warriors receivers — Garrett Johnson, a senior at Kentucky, and Eddie McDoom, a sophomore at Michigan — are expected to play big roles for their teams this fall.
