PrepNation 101 Preseason Countdown: No. 46 Mullen continues the most comprehensive package of preseason high school football rankings ever published. We are counting down the PrepNation 101 Preseason High School Football Rankings, from No. 101 to No. 26, leading up to the release of the official preseason National Prep Poll on August 3.

46. Mullen (Denver)
Last season: 12-2, Class 5A state champion
Coach: Dave Logan
Key players: LB Nduka Onyeali (6-1, 230, Sr.), LB-TE Leilon Willingham (6-3, 218, Jr.), DT Beau Martin (6-2, 250, Sr.), RB Adonis Ameen-Moore (6-1, 205, Jr.), WR-S Rayshawn Williams (6-0, 180, Jr.), QB Jonny Miller (6-2, 205, Sr.), OL Dewayne Pecosky (6-3, 275, Sr.)
Outlook: Eleven total starters return for the Mustangs, who captured the third state title since 1998 and delivered Logan his fourth state title at three different schools. Seven veterans are back on defense. It is a unit that is particularly strong along the front seven. Onyeali had 107 tackles and 20 sacks as a junior. Willingham started as a sophomore and made a major impact. Leading the offense once again is Miller, a Syracuse commitment. Ameen-Moore, one of the nation’s top Class of 2011 recruits, enters his third season as a major contributor in the Mullen offense. A third member of the Mustangs’ tremendous junior class is Williams, who is a cousin of Denver Broncos WR Brandon Marshall.
