The Ocean View High football program has never enjoyed the luxury of having an abundance of players to shuffle in and out of games. Rather, it has traditionally relied on two-way players to go out and fight on almost every down.
Such is the case again with this year's team, but the 2011 Seahawks have talent on both sides of the ball that could elevate them to another successful season.
Ocean View has 14 starters back from a 2010 team that last year won seven games and reached the CIF playoffs. Several players from that squad have graduated, but five all-league players are back for their senior seasons.
Taking over at quarterback for the graduated Nolan Tippy is Timmy Robinson. The 6-foot-1, 225 senior rushed for 1,272 yards and had 363 receiving yards and a total of 15 touchdowns last year as a running back. Ocean View offensive coordinator Eli Atol said that Robinson, who also plays middle linebacker and had the second most tackles (112) last year on defense, brings an "extra dimension to our attack."
