According to Vines, key players to date have included senior slotback/corner Evan Aguon, sophomore Clash Orsborn (quarterback) and senior defensive back Cedel Gregory.
In their most recent contest last Friday, the Bucs fell to San Diego High 18-0. The loss followed three straight wins over Clairemont, Mar Vista, and Mountain Empire, respectively.
“Our season has been okay,” Vines said. “It’s been an up-and-down start but our boys have shown resilience all year. They are getting better every day and every single rep is the goal for the remainder of the season.
“It’s a tough road that lies ahead of us the upcoming weeks and we have to be playing our best football to give us a chance. Focus on what it takes to be great, and not being great. Meaning, focusing on doing the little things it takes to be a great football team, and not focus on the end result,” Vines said.
Mission Bay closes out its October slate of games by playing host to Patrick Henry on Oct. 18 and Kearny on Oct. 25, respectively. Games start at 6 p.m. The regular season concludes Nov. 1 with a visit to unbeaten Scripps Ranch High at 6:30 p.m.
