NMPreps.com's 2013 5A State Title Game Preview
Las Cruces Team Preview Mayfield Team Preview
You look at who they graduated from last year's state title team and to see the Dawgs still cruising through New Mexico comp is impressive. Their defense has been outstanding forcing three shutouts this year and holding 7 out of their 12 opponents to just a single score or less. Running Back J.J. Granados has rushed for over 1,799-yards this year and 38 touchdowns. Sophomore Quarterback Kameron Miller has thrown for 1,678-yards and 21 touchdowns, Miller's main target has been Isaiah McIntrye who has caught for 451-yards and 4 touchdowns. Linebacker Sam Denmark has over 130 total tackles this year and also has caught for 378-yards and 6 touchdowns as a tight end on offense. Jalen Bishop, Isaiah McIntyre, and JR Hernandez create the top secondary in New Mexico, up front on offense watch for Carlos Campos and David Ramirez at defensive end who has 17 sacks. This team is A+ across the board. No one expected Mayfield to beat top ranked El Paso Eldorado in the start of the season, they did that, no one expected Mayfield to beat El Paso Franklin they did that, no one expected for them to lose to Volcano Vista, they did that, and no one expected them to beat undefeated Las Cruces in week 11, they did that too. It's a team that has continued to take care of business and have worked diligently to obtained their 11-1 season record. They catalyst to their offense is Quarterback Kavika Johnson who is a NMPreps.com Mr. Football Candidate with over 2,000 All-Purpose Yards this year. They have three running backs that can run the football: Phillip Ehly, David Stookey, and Payson Rogers. Their defense is led by Dominic Carrasco who has 16 sacks, and linebacker Joah Franzoy. No one thinks they'll beat Las Cruces twice in one reason, they've proved doubters wrong before…
