Mission Prep won its first Northern League title last year since moving to the league two years ago.
This year, the Royals are out to do it again behind senior quarterback Bryce Fledderman and senior running back Brayden Corona.
Mission Prep is thrown into the fire to start 2016 with a road trip to Santa Barbara to take on Bishop Diego, a team that went 12-1 last season with the only loss coming in the semifinals of the CIF-Southern Section Northern Division playoffs.
