No. 5: Monterey Plainsmen

Coach: Todd Pearson (fourth season)

2011 record: 5-6, 3-2 in District 2-5A (third place)

Playoff results: Lost to El Paso Franklin 44-14 in bi-district

Key losses: QB Tanner Maloney, LB Colson Craddick, DL Ty Striker, LB Conner Nielsen, DL Jesse Martell

Key returners: RB Byron Parker, DL Paul Childers, OL Patrick Hebison, OL Trevor Lee, DB Daniel Lopez,

2011 statistics: Offense, 20.3 ppg., 255.5 ypg.; Defense, 29.2 ppg., 343.6 ypg.

2012 breakdown: Not too long ago, Monterey was the epitome of playoff consistency with numerous district championships and deep playoff runs between 2000 and 2007. The Planismen suffered a few harsh years late in the decade, but appear to be on their way back up, and dropping to Class 4A should give them their first legitimate shot at a league crown since their last one in 2006 ... Monterey possesses one of the top tailbacks in the area in senior Byron Parker, who at 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds possesses the ability to run over and away from defenders. He’ll have an experienced offensive line in front of him with seniors Patrick Hebison, Trevor Lee and Noel Landeros leading the way. Senior Jacob “Dot” Bartholomae takes over under center ... Defensively the Plainsmen have many more questions to answer with just three returning starters, and it’s a group that desperately needs to lower the 343.6 yards-per-game allowed average it put up last season. The secondary will be the strength with Daniel Lopez and Jesse Perez returning, while Paul Childers (6-1, 235) settles in up front.

Top 10 So far

10. New Deal

9. Abernathy

8. Springlake-Earth

7. Idalou

6. Cooper

5. Monterey

Tomorrow: Some of the South Plains’ most explosive offensive weapons have come out of this school in the previous four seasons since this coaching staff turned the program around. None of those weapons have been more explosive than the potential Division I recruit they will lean on in 2012..

Who knew the "Planismen" had been playing football for over 1800 years? We all do now, thanks to the LAJ.
