Palma has a soph RB that will make an impact this coming season. He's a bigger and faster version of Martinez. He was injured towards end of season otherwise he would have been yup as a frosh for playoffs. Palma frosh Jonathan Bering another soph next season played alot in defensive back during the playoffs as a frosh. Palma will have some outstanding sophs at skill positions and should be pretty good at QB and on defense. I agree Salinas should be favorite, but either Palma will take some bruises next season or surprise. Future looks bright in a couple years for Palma as their frosh team has some athletes as well.
