PLAYERS TO WATCH 

Senior OL/DL Ty Delgado

The 6-foot-2, 275-pound Delgado should be the anchor of both lines for the Broncos. He was first-team all-Northwest Oregon Conference East Division last season on both sides of the line of scrimmage and co-lineman of the year (an honor he shared with Oregon State-bound Henry Buckles of Hood River Valley). "We're really looking for him to help set the tone," Jackson said. Delgado, the No. 49 prospect in 247Sports' Oregon class of 2021 rankings, earned honorable mention on The Oregonian/OregonLive Class 5A all-state team last season.

Senior RB/CB Mactae Harper

A second-team all-NWOC East choice at cornerback as a junior, Harper also regularly featured in the Broncos' running game. "Mactae is probably going to get a chance to make the offense run through him if he can handle that workload," Jackson said, also praising the 5-11, 152-pound senior's dedication and drive to improve. "He's been a very good back for us and has done a little bit of all-around skill-player things."

Senior WR/DB Keviantae Hill

Hill is a third-year varsity player. With Jay Jay Hudson and Dale Scott — second-team all-NWOC East wide receivers last season — gone, there should be room for Hill to emerge as an important target in the passing game.

Junior QB Michael Scott

Early in the year, Scott appeared to be the leader in the competition to succeed Tre Singleton, a first-team all-NWOC East quarterback last season. "We lost a good quarterback when Tre left, but I think there is a lot that Michael may have picked up on," Jackson said.

Junior OL/DL Peyton Cole

Cole has returned to organized football after trying it when younger but then taking a hiatus. "He's a little bit of a raw talent, but I'm really looking forward to coaching that kid up," Jackson said. At 6-3 and 260 pounds, Cole will combine with Delgado for a sizable nucleus on the lines. "We're looking pretty good with those two," Jackson said.
