Season Outlook:

The 2008 West Florida Jaguars enter the season on a 31-game losing streak.

In order for the Jags to break out of the slump, they must rely on their senior leadership that is up to the challenge of breaking the areas longest losing streak.

The offense returns quarterback Jarfri Taylor and wide receiver D.J. Cain. Both of these players are big play threats, and will be the source of most of the offense for West Florida.

On the ground, the Jaguars will get help from seniors Rod Simpkins and Gabe McCastler.

The defense will be young, but very talented.

Junior linebackers Andrew Baker and Jermycal Bowens will team up with junior defensive back Ashton Scott to spearhead the defense.

Defensive tackle Joshua Hootman will lead the way up front for West Florida.

The kicking game will be strong once again, as senior Taylor Lawrence returns to bolster the special teams.

West Florida can look at the schedule this season, and see winnable games.

The Jaguars kick off against Washington on September 5, and see Chipley and Catholic on September 19 and 26, respectively.

The district gets going on October 10 against Gulf Breeze, in a game that could jump start a good season for either team.

District play resumes on October 24 against Pensacola and wraps up November 7 in Panama City against Arnold.
