San Juan Broncos

The San Juan Broncos had to watch last season as rival Grand County won region and marched to the Class 2A title game.

Armed with a number of returning starters this year, San Juan is looking for a turnaround.

"When you have a struggling season, you always want to turn around and win those bragging rights back," Broncos coach Monty Lee said. "But we feel that we’re never satisfied wherever we are. We’re always trying to improve, be a little bit better tomorrow than we were today. We hope to get back there. We hope to be playing on the last day of the season."

San Juan running back Max Morley got more than a taste of action last season and he’ll be relied upon heavily this year.

Junior quarterback Peyton Palmer should be more seasoned too after being installed as the starter midway through his sophomore campaign.

"We had to take it slow so he could get the confidence elf his teammates around him," Lee said. "He’s done that with his work ethic."
