The Ocean View High School football team has begun preparations for the season opener against Santa Ana Valley.

“Summer is all about preparing for the season, making sure we’re in top physical and mental shape, so when the pads come it’s all about technique, game plans and execution” , Seahawks coach Jimmy Welker said.

“We’re returning a lot of guys with experience and we’re going to need our leaders to step in and make plays.”

Welker is looking for big seasons of quarterback/defensive back Frankie Armenta, offensive and defensive lineman Alexis Ayona, offensive lineman/linebacker Keiki Leuta and offensive and defensive linemen Jayden Trujillo, Iofi Silao and Josh Bobadilla.

“We have a few newcomers who will also make their presence felt: quarterback/linebacker Dylan Mayorga, running back/defensive back Jorian Smith Sherry, wide receiver/linebacker Jesse Gomez, wide receiver/defensive back Vai Levu and offensive and defensive lineman Axel Tangkau.

Ocean View was 3-7 overall and 1-2 in the Pac-4 League last season.

“I thought our competitive fight was there last year, this year we need to have better execution and be able to close out games in the fourth quarter,” Welker said.
