25 Days of Christmas: No. 21 The King’s Academy

It’s the fifth day of the 25 Days of Christmas preseason rankings for West Coast Preps, this time with the No. 21 team.

Only schools located within cities on the Bay Area Census are eligible for the poll.

West Coast Preps unveiled the No. 25, No. 24, No. 23 and No. 22 football teams in the Bay Area earlier this week.

No. 21: The King’s Academy

The King’s Academy in Sunnyvale is locked and loaded after a special 2019 season on the gridiron.

In a 10-4 campaign, the Knights captured a Central Coast Section Division III crown and came within seven points of a regional championship at the Northern California level in a 21-14 to Crescent City’s Del Norte High School.

Although the Knights graduate a 1,000-yard rusher and their top two receivers, a slew of talent comes back from that banner 2019 squad.

Army commit Noah Short is one of the top athletes in the region and showed it as a junior. Short accumulated 552 rushing yards and six touchdowns and 404 receiving yards and four touchdowns offensively, along with a monster output of 160 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and five interceptions defensively.

Next to Short is quarterback Antonio Gonzalez, who threw for 1,772 yards and 17 scores a year ago.
