Moroles will throw the pigskin to a quartet of wideouts, including Nathan Henning, Brett Wright, Arnold Black-Langston and Josiah Anastasi.

Senior Adam Knapman will run out of the Wolves backfield.

Big senior Alex Serrano, 6-1, 250, a first team All-Olympic League selection from 2012, will anchor the offensive line at left tackle.

Seniors Austin Sampson and Brett Wright will lead a quick, but youthful 4-4 defense that starts 4 juniors and 4 sophomores.

Triple-A ranks.

They started the 2013 campaign last Thursday with a come-from-behind 21-14 victory over South Delta, the defending provincial champion in the BC Double-A classification.

Grade 12 quarterback Tommy Robertson scored three rushing touchdowns in the Hyacks' win over the Sun Devils.

New West's Grade 11 offensive tackle Harper Sherman, a 6-5, 255-pounder, is being courted by several colleges south of the border for scholarship offers.
