PLAYERS TO WATCH

DT Dejon Roney – SR.

A 4-star prospect with upwards of a dozen offers, Roney can play anywhere on the defensive line but is usually on the inside. As a sophomore in 2019, he recorded 89 tackles, six tackles for loss, and three sacks.

WR Jordan Williams – SR.

Jordan-Williams-Etiwanda

Williams, a high 3-star prospect with seven offers, was not only one of Etiwanda's top deep threats in the spring, but also accounted for the vast majority of its rushing production with 384 yards and seven touchdowns rushing. In 12 games as a sophomore in 2019, he caught for 1,218 yards and 11 touchdowns, ran for 242 yards and two touchdowns on over 12 yards per carry, and chipped in nearly 300 KR yards to boot. Williams is likely to lineup up at WR most of the time again this season as Etiwanda looks to spread the field more, but remains one of the most versatile offensive threats in the state.

QB Isaiah Vasquez – JR.

Vasquez missed his entire junior season due to an injury, but had a very productive sophomore campaign. In 2019, he threw for 2,264 yards and 15 touchdowns in 12 games, and also ran for 259 yards and seven touchdowns. If he can stay healthy and improve a bit on his efficiency from two years ago, Vasquez, who has reclassified to 2023, could prove to be one of the best QBs in the Inland Empire.
