The defending Northern Section Division III champion West Valley Eagles are pushing to repeat for the first time in school history when they embark on the 2019 season.
Gone is Bailey Sulzer, the section’s leading rusher and the Northern Section Defensive MVP & Shasta County Sports Heisman winner. With a nucleus of key players back, including starting quarterback Kitt McCloughan, the backfield duo of Cade Lambert and Josh Aguilar, the offense is capable of putting up points. The defense will feature play-makers but have to work in some fresh faces in both the defensive line and the secondary.
West Valley head coach Greg Grandell and seniors Lambert and Bryan Miller talk about the upcoming season, how the Eagles will respond to being the team everyone is chasing and the mindset they bring to the field to achieve their goals.
