Serra (Gardena, Calif.) was absolutely loaded this past season with eight players decide on signing day. Next year's team won't have the same star power, but will still be solid led by talented defensive back Raymond Ford. Ford was a sophomore at Jordan (Los Angeles, Calif.), but transferred to Serra last spring. "He came a long way," Cavalier coach Scott Altenberg said. "When he first got here, it took him a little while to get used to the speed of our practices and how hard we worked in the weight room. Once he got in to the swing of things, he made some huge strides. He put on about 15 pounds in just a few months and then went out and had a great junior season for us."
