Colors: Black, Turquoise, Silver

2021 Record: 4-6

Overview: The big news surrounding the Capital program is the Jaguars’ move to Class 6A, which was expected in the wake of the enormous growth in South Santa Fe. The good news is Capital returns most of its major contributors from last season, starting with dynamic dual threat senior quarterback Julian Munoz Julian Munoz 5'8" | QB Capital | 2023 State NM . He’ll be backed up by sophomore Deaven Montano. At running back, sophomore Juan Munoz, Julian’s younger brother, is the favorite to win the starting job. Francisco Diaz and Andrew Rodriguez will get some carries as well. The Jaguars are deep at wide receiver with Javier Martinez Javier Martinez 5'11" | WR Capital | 2023 State NM (2nd team All-State), Anthony Anaya and Isaiah Martinez expected to play major roles in the passing attack. Senior center Lazarus Griego and Isaiah Valdez Isaiah Valdez 6'0" | DL Capital | 2023 State NM anchor the offensive line. Defensively, Isaiah Martinez, Francisco Diaz and Anaya are outstanding two-play players. Avelino Trujillo is a solid cornerback. Valdez is the top defensive linemen. With increased numbers, Capital hopes it doesn’t have to rely on as many two-way players as last season but initially they might have to.
