Outlook: The Yellowjackets look very promising, especially with returning 18 starters and a healthy quarterback in Andrew Olson, who missed seven games last season because of a broken arm. With so much experience and talent, this group is reminiscent of the 2008 Yellowjackets team that won the Sac-Joaquin Section title. The offensive line is back, talented receivers and defenders and the Yellowjackets have players like Garrett Jericoff, Zack Giuliano and Ryan White who will see a lot of field time. The Yellowjackets have also dedicated the season to Franky Silveira, the beloved assistant coach who suddenly passed away during the summer.
