  • Faith Lutheran Football Players to Watch

    Las Vegas Sun Article

    What to like about the Crusaders
    Faith Lutheran is expected to have a strong rushing attack with Vili Fetapai (6-foot-3, 320 pounds) and Dixon “Gray” Ryan (6-foot-1, 200 pounds) leading the way on the offensive line. The Crusaders had the benefit of competing in the shortened spring season, where they went 3-1 and got experience in new coach Mike Sanford’s system. Yes, that Mike Sanford, the former UNLV coach. His collegiate experience will give the Crusaders an edge on Friday nights.
    Players to watch: Fetapai, Ryan, TE/LB Jordan Pollard, DB/WR Jack Gentile, WR/DB Jaden Turner.
    Potential obstacles: Faith Lutheran takes steps each season to narrow the gap with Gorman, its Summerlin neighbor. But the gap is still significant as witnessed in their spring meeting, when Gorman raced to a 43-0 victory by the mercy rule of a running clock. To compete with the likes of Gorman — or Liberty and Desert Pines — the Crusaders will need to develop skilled position players.
