* Had another 10 win season even though it was their first year since 1980 without legendary head coach Dan Hooks.
* Formed in 1977 from the merger of West Orange (Chiefs) and Orange Lutcher Stark (Tigers) High Schools

  • Mike Says: The Mustangs will feature a Very tough defense with LB's Blanchard and Woodson along with DB's Janice and Tezeno. They are a Top 25 3A and will go Division II come playoff time. Look for them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and win the district championship. Once in the playoffs, they should go to at least the Regionals.
  • Chris Says: West Orange-Stark has been a power under coach Dan Hooks and it appears that even with his departure, these Mustangs can play.  Coach Cornel Thompson led a good team to the Quarterfinals in his first year at the WOS helm and looks to be in a position to continue.  The Mustangs return a large percentage of their defensive starters as well as quarterback, Jimmy Salter.  They should take the district and once again be a very tough out come playoff time.
