A big chunk of the roster of the 2011 Los Alamos Hilltopper football team has limited or no varsity experience.
Those youngsters, however, will get tested in a hurry this season.
The Hilltoppers’ season kicks off Saturday against Pojoaque. Game time is 1:30 p.m.
Even before the first snap, however, the Hilltoppers will have plenty of challenges ahead of them this season. The Hilltoppers have only 25 players listed on the varsity roster, more than half of those being freshmen or sophomores, the majority of which have little or no experience at the varsity level.
Los Alamos head coach Garett Williams, who is entering his second season, said the team’s first live action this season, last week’s scrimmage against Piedra Vista, went fairly well overall.
“It wasn’t bad,” Williams said. “We still have a long way to go as far as execution. That’s because we’re so young. But we’ve got a good offensive line and a good group of skill guys.”
In 2011, the Hilltoppers are hoping to improve on a 4-6 record in Williams’ first year. The Hilltoppers finished in second place in the District 2-4A standings, missing out on the playoffs after a tight, three-way race between them, Santa Fe and eventual champion Bernalillo.
