The Dos Pueblos High School boys' volleyball team is gearing up for a promising season filled with determination, hard work, and a hunger for victory. After coming in third place consistently since their last Channel League title in 2018, Coach Ehren Hug and his team are ready to break through and reclaim their spot on top. In this article, we will dive into the details of the team's goals, key players, and their strategy for achieving success in the upcoming season. One of the main goals for the Chargers this season is to take back the Channel League title. Coach Hug states that the team has been steadily closing the gap between themselves and rivals Santa Barbara and San Marcos. However, it all comes down to execution on the court. Coach Hug emphasizes that the keys to success this season will be "aggressive consistency from the service line, a spread offense, and a contagious loud and relentless defense." With this mindset and strategy, the Chargers are determined to reach the top of the Channel League standings once again. But the team's sights are set beyond just the Channel League title. As Coach Hug mentions, making it to at least the semi-finals of the Division 2 playoffs is also a major goal for the team. They were knocked out in the quarterfinals of Division 2 last season and Division 3 in 2022, making them hungry for a shot at the CIF banner this year. Ultimately, the team's ultimate goal is to end the season with a win and take home the title, complete with a series of victorious photos holding up the #1 finger. The Chargers have a solid roster this season, filled with talented and determined players. Standing out among them is Micah Goss, a UC Irvine commit who is back in action after a previous injury. With his incredible athleticism and ability as a front or back-row player, Goss is expected to make a significant impact on the team's success this season. Another key player is senior captain and libero Ezekiel Tynes, who is known for his exceptional defensive abilities and consistency in effort. With improvement in his passing and serving game, Tynes is expected to lead the team well on the defensive end. Jan Schmidtchen, also known as "The Flying Dutchman," is another senior to watch this season. As an outside hitter, Schmidtchen is ready to continue his explosive plays on the court with an even more ferocious jump serve than last year.
