Beat Brophy? Many have a chance.
Outlook: Few teams anywhere - especially Division I - have undergone as much change as Brophy, and arguably nobody plays a more difficult schedule (on paper) in the state.
In the past week, we’ve revealed 10 of the top football players to watch on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball in 2013. Sometimes, though, it’s the under-the-radar guys who make as big of an impact.
Brian Woodward, Sr., QB, Brophy
Woodward had a nice year as a defensive back for the Broncos a season ago, finishing with 49 tackles and four interceptions. He’s transitioning to quarterback as a senior, and he has some big shoes to fill. Tyler Bruggman was a three-year starter for Brophy before moving on to Washington State this fall. The Broncos lost offensive weapons Devon Allen, Clarence Clark and Marche Dennard to graduation, so it will be a new group taking over. Brophy isn’t expected to be a state title contender like a year ago, but a good season from Woodward could make them a tough out in the postseason.

However, there were five males that stood out above the rest, either for their complete dominance in one sport or their ability to compete at the highest level in different ones.

While Desert Mountain may have underwhelmed in the opener, Brophy opened some eyes.

The defense did a great job and the special teams blocked two field goal attempts and a punt and scored a touchdown in the 13-6 victory.
