Coach Kindell’s Notes:  Excellent DB group coming out of Northern California this season.  With the increase of 7v7 over the past few years this position group just keeps getting better and better.  I grouped together Corners & Safeties in this post.  Again, a lot of these ball players also contribute on offense and in the return game.
