KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Our next high school football preview takes us to Southridge. The Suns return 15 starters from last season. That includes seven from the top-ranked Mid-Columbia Conference defense in yards allowed per game. The Suns have struggled to find a strong arm at quarterback, but senior playmakers Brenden Kelly at wide receiver and Kadin Diaz at running back will help the Suns compete.

"Football is a physical game and we're going to play it that way. We're going to be physical up front. We're going to be physical with our secondary. We want them to see that we're explosive. We're going to live on the edge. We're going to be physical," Southridge head coach Tony Reiboldt said.

"Everybody on our team gives it 100%. You're not going to catch us jogging. Last year we were like the cardiac kids. I'm sure guys remember that. We're going to try as hard as we can to work harder that the people in front of us," Diaz added.
