Sun Valley High drops to 1-2 in the Southern Carolina Conference after a tough 27-13 loss to conference newcomer Charlotte Catholic.
It wasn’t the outcome Sun Valley head coach Tad Baucom was looking for, but his team played well based on the circumstances.
Sun Valley’s D1 prospect quarterback, Sam Howell, saw his first live action in a game and a half after sitting out with a shoulder sprain. Howell’s timing and arm strength were lacking understandably, but the junior QB fought through the rust giving his team a chance to tie the score late in the game.
The Spartans defense came to play making the game manageable and close. In my opinion, it was their best play of the season against a grade-A offense.
After the game, Coach Baucom discussed the play of his team and star quarterback.
