THREE TO SEE
Jaime Odom, quarterback
Entering his third season as the Foothillers signal-caller
and looking to add on to his career totals that have seen him accumulate 52
total touchdowns in only 23 career games.
Brody Schicker, wide receiver
Caught 24 passes in 2018, though 7 of them wound up as
Robert Tucker, running back
A threat running and catching, looks to come back strong
after an injury cut last season short.
The Foothillers finished below .500 last season for the first time since 2008. With a schedule that features seven home games and several returning pieces at key positions, Grossmont should find success this season.
Typically known as a pass-first offense, Grossmont returns their top three rushers from a season ago that should provide more flexibility to the offense.
Only one of Grossmont’s top six receivers returns from a year ago, but last year’s connection could make Odom and Schicker one of the county’s top pass-catching duos.
