Andrew Skaff on his team

What Valley Center does well: “I feel like we’re definitely the underdog this year. Teams think they can just look past us, but I think we have a lot of playmakers this year. We have a lot of leaders and I think we’re going to surprise some of the bigger teams.”

What has to improve: “I think it’s going to come down to our lines. On our O-line, a lot of those guys played behind the seniors last year their whole high school (career). We’re going to need them to step up and once they get that experience, I think we should be good.”
