Lakeview returns top players
The Lakeview football team, coming off a second place finish in the Class 2A Southern Cascade League, returns more than half of its starters from last season.
Standout seniors on the team include wide receiver/defensive back Payton Hamilton, quarterback Kyle Johnson and lineman Seth Ballaine.
Second-year head coach Steve Prock, a longtime coach at Glendale prior to joining Lakeview, said his team is more comfortable using the spread offense that he introduced last season.
The Honkers were 4-6 overall in 2009. Lakeview is the only team in its league outside of Jackson County.
"I like it that way," Prock said. "I'm not sure if the other coaches know us as well. That's just fine though — we prefer to lay low."
