3 Loyola Los Angeles, CA 0-0-0
Loyola returns 10 players from last year's undefeated section and regional championship squad, led by All-CIF pick Matthew Koh.
4 San Clemente San Clemente, CA 0-0-0

5 McKinney Boyd McKinney, TX 0-0-0
McKinney Boyd, with first-team all-district performers Evan Davies, Hayden Brown, Hayden Uhl and Cody Spitzer possibly returning, along with district newcomer of the year Braden Andrews, Boyd earns the spot as Texas preseason favorite. Boyd reached the state semifinals last year before losing to Coppell.
6 Coppell Coppell, TX 0-0-0
With Colten Clark, Austin Michaelis and Roberto Arugello expected to return, Coppell should remain a strong state title contender. The Cowboys went 22-2-2 last year, losing only to Montverde Academy (Fla.) and in Fort Bend Clements in the state final.
7 Cathedral Los Angeles, CA 0-0-0
Cathedral might return as many as 15 players from last year's regional semifinalist squad that put together a 27-win season.

8 Fort Bend Clements Sugar Land, TX 0-0-0
Clements ended the 2014 season on a 22-match win streak to capture the program's first state title. Twelve players received some level of all-district mention last year, leaving this year's squad loaded with lofty expectations.
9 San Pasqual Escondido, CA 0-0-0
Coaches in San Diego gave San Pasqual a preseason nod, largely because the team could return 13 players from a 14-4-7 squad.
10 Canoga Park Canoga Park, CA 0-0-0
Canoga Park returns nine starters from last year's CIF Division II semifinalist team. Coach Jack Gwin said this year's team could be the strongest at Canoga Park since the program captured a SIMA FAB 50 national title in 2007.
11 Gulliver Prep Miami, FL 0-0-0
Gulliver Prep might have graduated several players from last year's state title team, but a favorable relationship with the local Development Academy squad and plenty of talent will keep the Raiders in the national title hunt this season. Among the key returners are North Carolina commit Alexander Moztarzadeh, along with keeper Esteban Sapetnitzky, Alberto Poleo and last year's top scorer Adriano Castro.
12 Poway Poway, CA 0-0-0

Hamilton, coming off a state runner-up finish in 2014, brings back a lineup that includes all-state honoree Zack Lipman, along with Ryan Banyai, Pedro Garcia and Kalvin Parr. Hamilton has reached the Arizona large-school state final four of the last five years. This year's team will compete in the Montverde Academy Soccer Tournament in January.
14 Byron Nelson Trophy Club, TX 0-0-0
With three all-district players, led by Goalkeeper of the year Chase Therrien, expected to return, Nelson is considered a serious state title threat. The team went 27-1-3 last year.
15 Lopez Brownsville, TX 0-0-0
Lopez or Rivera? Rivera or Lopez? It's the same question every year in the Rio Grande Valley, near the Mexican border. Regardless of who is favored, it's becoming routine one of these squads are state championship caliber every year. Lopez gets the nod this season after coming off a 21-3-1 showing in 2014.
16 Rivera Brownsville, TX 0-0-0
The Raiders were heavy favored and even climbed into the FAB 50 Top 10 last year, before settling on a 23-3-0 season and a No, 37 final ranking. The Raiders and Lopez are expected to be the standout squads in the Rio Grande Valley.
17 Tucson Magnet Tucson, AZ 0-0-0
With goalkeeper Anthony Siaha and Julian Gaona headlining the project starters, Tucson is very much in the conversation for a FAB 50 Top 10-type season. Gaona had 31 goals and 15 assists as a sohpomore last year, helping Tucson to a 24-0-3 season. Siaha, also a sohpomore last year, was the Division II first-team all-state goalkeeper.
18 Sunlake Land O'Lakes, FL 0-0-0
If Remi Pimm returns for Sunlake, this could be a serious Top 10 contender. Pimm, who earned state player of the year honors as a sophomore in 2014, scored 64 goals last season. Even if Pimm is not back, Sunlake can turn to Coonor Spencer, who entered the season just shy of 100 career goals.
19 Palos Verdes Palos Verdes Estates, CA 0-0-0
Despite graduating most of its offensive power from last season, Palos Verdes is in a "reload" situation, according to local coaches. The Sea Kings have won 20 or more matches each of the last four years.
20 Cypress Bay Weston, FL 0-0-0
Year-in, year-out, Cypress Bay has proven to be one of the best programs in Florida. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the school has more than 4,400 students. The Lightning are favored over local rival Boca Raton as the top large-school team in South Florida this year.
21 Marcus Flower Mound, TX 0-0-0
Trace Marshall and Danny Blaney earned first-team all-district honors last year for Marcus, and if both return look for the Marauders to compete with Coppell for the district title. Marcus is coming off a 19-2-4 season.

Coronado was the only team to put two underclassmen on the all-CIF squad last year, then-juniors Tanner Caldwell and Diego Ochoa.
23 St. John Bosco Bellflower, CA 0-0-0
St. John Bosco placed only one player on the all-CIF Southern Section squad last year, but it was then-junior David Rodriguez. St. John Bosco, coming off a 16-win season, figures to be a league title challenger for rival Servite.
