Overview
They may have fallen one game short once again of playing at the UNI-Dome but
Pleasant Valley has gone 18-0 during the final two years of MAC regular season
football. The Spartans have a lot of talent that must be replaced and
their ability to reload will dictate how good they can be as they move to
district play. The offense will have nearly all new skill players but Ryan
Spelhaug is back up front after earning first team all conference honors a
year ago. This group will be a work in progress during the off-season as
the coaches get athletes in key spots ready to perform at a high level.
Expect three returning starters along the line to make life much easier.
The defense will be searching for quality numbers to bolster the roster but
return their top two tacklers in Brendon Bormann and David Carr. A few
other teammates bring back big game experience but will be thrust into much more
important roles. On paper, this team will struggle to keep pace with their
recent success but this is not a group to bet against. They have excelled
in the MAC and hope to continue building as one of the best programs in Class 4A
on the gridiron.

Team Strengths
I think our strength will be our offensive line and the style of offense we run
helps make up for some defecencies we might have on both sides of the ball. I
also like the number of Seniors that will be lining it up for us this upcoming
season which is always helpful having that experience. On the defensive side of
the ball I like our linebackers we have coming back with lots of experience.
Questions Marks
We will need to stay healthy just like every other team and it will be important
for this crew to gel and buy into our philosophy of Total Effort. We do that and
I like our chances of being very competitive again.
