(PICTURED: Westwood QB Bear Fenimore ('14) and i-Reporter Hannah Huffman ('14) at 2013 prom)
OVERVIEW: 2012 was the most successful football season in Westwood Warriors history. Area champions, Coach Anthony Wood continues to bring this football program to new heights. He is a great role model for the district, and a key personality in the world of Texas high school football.
The Warriors lose some tremendous senior talent (Wake Forest's Brad Watson, Rice's Parker Hanusa, Fresno State's Colin McGuire, ect), but thre's no shortage of players in waiting. The question is: who will fly from the under-the-radar to become a Warriors star?
This could be the year for Warriors RB Mason Bartek ('14). He led the team in carries and rush yards (over 560) last season, and could go for over 1000 yards in 2013. While the reliable Tanner Osborn is gone, we expect RB Erik Tran ('15) to contribute to the run game. Don't let Tran's polite demeanor fool you - he has speed and stamina to burn.
Reports say WR Josh Bishop ('14) has turned the corner. He's catching everything in practice, and has always had big play potential. But WR Travis Dale ('14) could win up having the biggest season (600 yards receiving). Dale actually was a full time player his sophomore year, but was used more in blocking schemes. The 3-year letterman is ready to become the team's top receiving target. We're willing to bet Nick Andress ('15) and Colton Kirkby ('15) will snag their fair share. ATH Travis Wilde ('15) attempts to cash in on his potential. As usual, the Warrior skill players look legit.
The offensive line returns 7 players with Varsity experience, led by Brenden Moore ('14). Seth Pitman ('14) and Hayden McSorely ('15) provide experience in the trenches. Protecting QB Bear Fenimore ('14) is of ultra-importance when it comes to Westwood. Bear was one of only two 16-5A quarterbacks to throw for over 1250 yards (1890 total yards), despite missing playing time last season. His passing production, coupled with his Tebow-esque run style make him a deadly duo threat. He could pass and throw for more than 1000 yards easily in 2013.
The line starts with emotional leader Lucas Dielman ('14). #56 plays with passion on every play. In total, we count five players returning up front, including Brandon Brown ('14). The athletic Christian Benford ('15) could find himself with a handful of sacks if he takes the next step. Its important that the line gel quickly, because the Westwood is young at linebacker. Can Marcus Fisher-Jones ('14) live up to the hype he had as a sophomore? Dayton Ames ('15) must progress. Walter Nunez ('14) and John Bentatcourt ('14) gives re-enforces the youngsters, and could exceed expectations.
DB Sean Hoeferkamp ('14), my how time flies. Since picking off a postseson pass his sophomore year, #20 has come a long way. He could be an MVP type, if he applies himself. Adding Michael McCaughey ('14) makes Westwood's defensive backfield a strength. DB Daniel Fry ('15) is as tenacious as they come. Brandon Meaux ('14) and Joe Gugala ('14) return for what could be their career year. Gugala could perhaps contribute on offense as well. Zach Sigler/Mitchell Tellez are eventual three year lettermen, vying for more playing time. We're exctied to see this unit at work during Summer 7 on 7.
COMPLETE LIST OF RETURNING LETTERMEN:
5 Michael McCaughey DB, WR Jr. 51 John Betancourt LB Jr. 60 Ryan Harrington OL Jr. 63 Seth Pittman OL Jr. 71 Chase Saxon OL Jr. 64 Brendan Moore OL Jr. 61 Andy Acevedo DL Jr. 56 Lucas Dielmann DL Jr. 50 Walter Nunez LB Jr. 44 Brandon Brown DE Jr. 38 Trent Maindelle DE Jr. 37 Marcus Fisher-jones LB Jr. 33 Daniel Fry DB Jr. 4 Josh Bishop WR Jr. 6 Travis Dale WR Jr. 8 Garrett Gibbins WR, PR Jr. 18 Joe Gugala DB Jr. 22 Mason Bartek RB Jr. 29 Brandon Meaux DB Jr. 20 Sean Hoeferkamp DB Jr. 16 Bear Fenimore QB Jr. 3 Nick Andress WR So. 47 Dayton Ames LB So. 53 Christian Benford DL So. 72 Tanner Ross OL So. 57 David Puryear OL So. 52 Michael Buckley OL So. 30 Zach Sigler DB So. 24 Mitchell Tellez DB So. 2 Travis Wilde WR So.

(PICTURED: We felt Severt's pick up in Round 2 had the most upside of the second round, with 3 signal callers drafted in Round 1)
With the NFL Draft ongoing...we thought, 'what if'? So we convinced 7 area coaches (most relunctantly agreed) to participate in an Austin-area draft. The selections are solely comprised of our five major UIL districts (25, 17 and 26-A, plus 15 and 16-5A). We asked them to draft according to what they felt each player would contribute in 2013. We provide you the results and ask YOU...who has the best team?
TEAM1: RB Samaje Perine, Hendrickson
TEAM2: WR Garrett Gray, Marble Falls
TEAM3: QB Nathan Grimm, Cedar Park
TEAM4: RB Shaun Nixon, Lake Travis
TEAM5: RB/QB Billy McCrary, Rouse
TEAM6: QB Te’Rel Simmons, Elgin
TEAM7: RB Stedman Mayberry, Vista Ridge
OVERVIEW: Only 1 wideout went in the first round, but Gray is special. No surprise with top pick. Mayberry’s pick at end of first round is perhaps biggest sleeper pick. Obviously anybody in the first round is considered a preseason MVP candidate (round 2-3 for that matter).
TEAM7: RB Tyrone Owens, Manor
TEAM6: RB Deandre Story, Round Rock
TEAM5: RB Donnie Holmes, McNeil
TEAM4: QB Jordan Severt, Westlake
TEAM3: RB Thomas Middleton, Cedar Park
TEAM2: WR Travis Dale, Westwood
TEAM1: QB John Albert Mansour, Austin High
OVERVIEW: RBs were the rave in round 2 and 3, with teams choosing to take higher end backs over receiving help. Walton going above teammate Moody was a surprise. Miller and McClatcher were sophomore last year that could have huge follow ups.
TEAM7: WR Trevon Louis, Crockett
TEAM6: RB Quin Goode, Austin High
TEAM5: WR Luke Peterman, Vandegrift
TEAM4: WR Keyon Dilosa, Round Rock
TEAM3: WR Datrean Simmons, Elgin
TEAM2: QB Brandon Hopp, Leander
TEAM1: WR Blake Allen, Anderson
TEAM1: ATH Tyler Moody, Georgetown
TEAM2: RB AJ Badour, Rouse
TEAM3: ATH Stevie Johnson, Bowie
TEAM4: WR Justin Gamble, Stony Point
TEAM5: ATH Keith Newton, Lanier
TEAM6: WR Samuel Brock, Cedar Park
TEAM7: WR Grant Foster, Lake Travis
TEAM 7: ATH Christian Lee Reyes, Vandegrift
TEAM6: ATH Jordan Tonkins, Stony Point
TEAM5: ATH Sabian Cannon (McCallum)
TEAM4: ATH Kelvin Foster, Del Valle
TEAM3: WR Devin Tuggle, Cedar Creek
TEAM2: ATH Quincy Reese, Austin High
TEAM1: WR Andre Alger, Rouse
OVERVIEW: Plenty of value by waiting on receivers into rounds 5 and 6, reflecting more depth vs. top end talent. Both Austin High backs went off the board. Tuggle and Foster stand out as the sole picks from their respective programs. Alger is another under-the-radar pick.
ROUND 7 (DEFENSE ONLY, Reversed From Round 1)
TEAM7: Cedar Park
TEAM5: Lake Travis
TEAM4: Vista Ridge
OVERVIEW: Blake Rain reigns supreme. Manor’s defense is both under rated and under appreciated. Cecil-led MAC defense an enticing pick. Most of the selections from the notorious 25-4A district.
QB John Albert Manour (Austin)
RB Samaje Perine (Hendrickson), Darian McClatcher (Leander)
WR Blake Allen (Anderson), Andre Alger (Rouse)
ATH: Tyler Moody (Georgetown)

One of Fanstand's faves, McNeil WR Ryan Murphy ('13) will play football for Mary Hardin Baylor next Fall. As you can see from a 'proud mom' post - he earned serious recognition in his senior season. One of the biggest personalities we've had the pleasure of covering, we'll miss you next season #15.
