The high school football season is just three weeks away.  The Valley High School football team has some big holes to fill this season.

 The Vikings were a #1 seed in the playoffs. They made it all the way to the state semifinals last season but lost the Player of the Year in quarterback Bo Coleman. 

How do the Vikings plan to replace a guy who threw for over 2,700 yards and 39 touchdowns last season?

"You don't replace a guy like Bo Coleman,” said head coach Enrico Marcelli. “We have a good guy coming in. He's going to be different than Bo and that's just the nature of what we do but he can be just as effective. He can do some things that will help us offensively.  We feel comfortable with Jordan Velasquez there."
