League: Principals’ Athletic Conference.
Coach: Ray Carroscia, 16th season at CVCA.
Coach’s record: 100-64 at CVCA.
2012 record: 5-5, 4-3.
Players to watch: Andrew Schauer, Sr. RB/DB; Jake Butler, Sr. RB/LB; Mike Meadows, Sr. OL/LB; Maurice Dorrell, Sr. TE/DB; Tyler Maclellan, Sr. OL/DL; Will Rice ,Sr. OL/DL; Andrew Harris, Sr. WR/DB; Dom Massa, Jr. OL/DL.
Outlook: Carroscia will continue to run his Wing T offense around seniors Schauer and Butler, but he hopes to spread the ball around a bit more this season. Among the strengths, Carroscia sees a team that’s “unified, working hard, we’ve got a lot of seniors and a lot of speed.” Carroscia concedes that the Royals lack size to go along with that quickness.
