Final Super 25 Rank: 17
Why them: The Cadets won the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title and that was with a young team.
The running attack is solid as seniors Keilan Robinson and Ron Cook return, along with sophomore Antwain Littleton and freshman Dee Carter-Williams Jr. Sol-Jay Maiava, who threw for 1,541 and 15 TDs last season as a sophomore at Hawaii state runner-up Kahuku, will have plenty of targets to throw to, including junior WR Rakim Jarrett, who is drawing big-time college offers.
Senior DE Treymon Morris-Brash and junior DL-LB Mekhail Sherman are among the top returnees on defense, along with junior DB Luke Hill, senior DB-WR Quinten Johnson, sophomore DT Taizse Johnson and junior DB-WR Mordecai McDaniel.
