Final 2014 Super 25: 3

The Spartans have won five state Open Division Bowl titles in the past six seasons by running the veer offense to perfection. To make things easier, De La Salle returns 12 starters, led by the backfield of Andrew Hernandez and Antoine Custer, who combined for 3,700 yards and 54 touchdowns.

QB Anthony Sweeney, hurt for much of last season, is back and he has elite TE Devin Asiasi to throw to.

Senior Boss Tagaloa anchors a solid defensive line that includes three returnees. Juniors Tre White and Isaiah Randle will have to step up right away to bolster a young secondary. The Spartans will also look to find ways to get speedster Jonathan Harvey in the offense.

The Spartans have a tough schedule ahead, including a trip to Texas to face Euless Trinity and a renewal of the rivalry with Long Beach Poly.
