2012 Preview: Lakeview Honkers



Lakeview-Paisley Honkers
(2011 Record: 8-3; 2-1 3A Southern Cascade League – Lost 58-17 to Rainier in state quarterfinals )

Sean Radford’s first year at Lakeview High School saw a lot of valuable seniors with good size. Eight losses from that quarterfinal team will challenge Radford’s Honkers to revamp their strategy in 2012 – switching from size to speed.

Lakeview has its entire offensive backfield back to run a spread offense it hopes will challenge Cascade Christian for the league title. First team all-league selections quarterback Cody Clemens and running back Ben Mainini return, as does second team running back Lane Hadley. The Honkers will depend on three new receivers to catch the ball. The defense only returns one player from each area – line, linebacker and secondary.


Head Coach: Sean Radford (2nd Year with Lakeview)

Returning starters: Offense: 3, Defense: 3
- Notable returners: Cody Clemens (QB), Ben Mainini (RB), Lane Hadley (RB), Tony Frank (LB), Martin McKay (DT), Reid Martin (DB)

Key newcomers: Aaron Hargis (WR/DB), Grady Vandenberg (WR/DB), Ronny Humphries (WR/DL), Danny Smith (OL/LB), Saul Ballaine (WR/LB), Conner Forbes (OL/DL)
