The West Valley Eagles probably have the highest potential of any football team in the northern section this season, as West Valley returns 17 starters from last years squad. That includes the best running back duo in the section Brady Casselman and Austin Clark who each averaged more than 8 yards per carry last season, while combining to rush for nearly 2,800 yards and 36 touchdowns. Now last season the Eagles went 11-2 falling to Sutter in the division 2 section title game 38-31 in double overtime. It's a loss none of them have forgotten and are using big time for motivation this year. West Valley opens up the season on August 30th (Week 0) at home against Del Norte.
