BRADEN TORMEY ON HIS TEAM

What Valley Center does well: “We have a lot of experienced seniors coming back and I think we’re going to match up with opponents a lot better. We’re feeling like we can turn things around this year.”

What has to improve: “Being in a losing program, you’re going to need somebody to step up and lead and show they still believe they can win and be that vocal leader.”
