The pigskin is spinning once again as the Enumclaw High Hornets prepare for the 2015 football season.

Coach Mark Gunderson will be walking the sidelines for his fourth season and first out of the chute is the Battle of the Bridge against White River Hornets at 7 p.m. Friday at Sheets Field.

Gunderson’s teams have taken home the trophy each year he has been at the helm.

Returning for Enumclaw is Scotty Garvin at quarterback. Gunderson said the 6 foot-5 inch Garvin is “one of the best players in the league.” With Garvin’s big arm the Hornets should be a threat in the air and on the ground.

Receiver and free safety Jordan Johnson, who earned all-league honors last season, will be on the catching end of Garvin’s throws.

Sam Schuler led the league in tackles last season and the all-area linebacker should give the Hornets the necessary leadership on the defense.

Connor Pierce will carry the ball and Gunderson has high expectations for senior. He missed most of last season with a concussion. If he stays healthy he could be one of the top backs in the league.

“Health is the key for us,” Gunderson said. “If we can stay healthy we will make a run.”

Many of the players have been with Gunderson since he took over as coach.

“This is the best group I have had,” Gunderson said. “It’s been a blast to be with them for four years.”

Enumclaw will come home Sept. 11 to play Eastside Catholic in a nonleague game and go on the road to play Sumner for its first South Puget Sound League 3A game.

Last season the Hornet finished with a 4-5 record
