Bay Area News Group preseason rankings, Nos. 11-15


Coach: Michael Peters

Last season’s record: 13-1

Why No. 15: McClymonds has eight players back from the team that edged La Jolla Country Day in December for the Division 5-A state championship. Four of the five were starters, including quarterback Emoreea Fountain. The Warriors also added standout RB Jarmar Julien Jr., who transferred from Oak Grove after a strong sophomore season. McClymonds has not lost an Oakland Athletic League game since 2009 and is the favorite once again. But does it have enough to win the program’s second state crown? McClymonds opens the season Aug. 25 at The King’s Academy, now coached by Pete Lavorato, formerly of Sacred Heart Prep. Lavorato’s SHP team routed McClymonds 56-20 in a NorCal championship game in 2015.
