The 2010-2011 Cabrillo College Seahawks return four Sophomores from last seasons 14-12 team that finished in 2nd place in the Coast Conference South division with an 8-4 record. *Markus Duran*, a second team All-Coast Conference selection as a Freshman, (6'1", 180) will look to lead the Seahawks as the only returning starter from last year. Duran led the state in three point field goals made in 09-10 and will no doubt be one of the better three point shooters again this season. *Daniel Johnston*, (6'3", 200), will look to play a much bigger role this year with his steady improvement since last year. *Bertram Hall*, (6'6", 215), started several games last year and will also be counted on if the Seahawks are to win the Conference. *Cody Boaz*, (6'2", 185), has also improved considerably from last year and is now entering his third year in the program after recovering from ACL tear two years ago. He to will be competing for playing time.
Coach Tony Marcopulos, entering his 11th year as Head Coach, welcomes nine newcomers to the program. *Justyn Searle*, (6'9", 215) Kerns High School in Salt Lake City, UT, *Travis Van Diest*, (6'8", 210) Rocky Mountain High School in Boise, ID. *Erik Witzig*, (6'3", 215) Scotts Valley High School in Scotts Valley, CA Searle, Van Diest and Witzig will be competing for playing time along with Hall at the post position. The competition at the forward position will see, along with Johnston and Boaz,* Darrell Espy*, (6'4", 190) Dominguez High School in Compton, CA and a recent transfer from Norfolk State University in Virginia. *Trevor* *English*, (6'5", 190) Reno High School in Reno, NV and *Aaron Short*, (6'4", 200) North Valley High School in Reno, NV. All three have had very impressive High School careers and will all be excellent additions. The competition at that position will be quite a battle. In the back court, along with Duran, Cabrillo has added *Reed Kamler*, (6'2", 185) San Rafael High School in San Rafael, CA and a transfer from the University of the Pacific.* Tyler Velasquez*, (5'10", 170) Doherty High School in Colorado Springs, CO. *Stevie McCloyn*, (5'11", 180) Taylorsville High School in Salt Lake City, UT. The competition in the backcourt will be interesting as well.
Coach Marcopulos and his Seahawks will again look to win another Coast Conference South Championship. Over the past four years Cabrillo has either won the Conference Championship or come in second. In a recent interview Marcopulos had this to say regarding the 10-11 upcoming season. "We are deeper than we have been in the recent past, no question. This might very well be the best shooting team I have had since I have been at Cabrillo. I'm excited about our season and discovering how good we can get. At this point, we certainly have along way to go but I think they are looking forward to the journey. I know I am."
The Seahawks will open the 2010-2011 season on the road at the John Wallace Tournament hosted by Ohlone College on Friday Nov. 5th at 1:00pm vs. Sacramento City College.
