Sun Valley kicks off the season opener in the Charlotte Kickoff Classic in less than 48 hours. Their opponent, Charlotte Christian, the 2018 NCISAA Division I State Champions.
It doesn't get much harder than that. Christian is one of the power football programs in the state against a Sun Valley squad that has graduated 26 seniors including their greatest player, quarterback Sam Howell.
Tad Baucom, Sun Valley's head coach, has seen everything in his long, celebrated career. He knows 2019 won't be easy but has confidence that he has a roster that will compete and get better as the season progresses.
*This season preview was recorded on August 8th well before Sun Valley decided on their starting quarterback. It is now well known that much like Sam Howell four years ago, the Spartans will go with a freshman at QB, Carson Black. *
