2014 East Sac County Team Preview

2014 breakdown: Overview | Top Returnees | Newcomers


After winning three of their first four games, East Sac County didn't have the firepower down the stretch and that left them outside of the playoff picture. Getting back on track is the focus heading into the fall and this team has the experience, size, and speed to get the job done. Quarterback Tyler Jacobsen is one of eight returning starters offensively and he may be the most important. As a junior, he threw for 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns. His top receiver may be gone but running back Nick Snyder along with a large portion of his line is back. Cameron Allen and Damon Cook were two of their most consistent defenders and will be asked to do even more as leaders. This unit slowed down a lot of solid offenses and if they put up enough points on the board, don't be surprised to see the Raiders competing with the best in the district.
