Mustangs Look to Make the Most of 2020

Brock Kappelmann - September 2, 2020 7:20 am

The corona virus has been tough on everyone.  But in terms of local sports, few have a bigger challenge bringing student athletes together in the summer than Southwestern Heights.  In a school district that covers a vast area, the Mustangs were able to muster together a summer and have hopes heading into the season returning most of their key skill position players for third year head coach Matt Bell.  That’s despite the ongoing corona virus. The Mustangs are thin in numbers with 23 out for football with six starters back on offense and five back on defense from a team which went 4-5 last year.  There is youth up front where three of the four lineman are sophomores.

Some of the key SWH players are Sr. QB/DB Hever Mercado, Sr. lineman Efren Natividad (290 lbs), Jr. RB/LB Memo Flores, Sr. WR/DB Walter Ramirez, Sr. TE/LB Sergio Puentes, and Sr. Jace Bost.

The Mustangs were featured during Sportsguys last week.

Four of the eight Mustang opponents have a new head coach.
