THREE TO SEE
Hunter Koch WR, CB
Caught 23 passes for 351 yards and four TDs as a junior.
Ryan Morrison QB
First year starter under center. Has played well in passing tournaments this offseason. Koch will be his main target.
Jake Santos RB, FS
Had 65 carries for 662 yards and eight TDs last season. Also caught two TDs and had two INTs on defense.
Valencia will most likely win the Foothill league again in 2019. They haven’t lost a league game since 2012. The D-1 playoffs will most likely be out of reach, but the Vikings have a chance to make some noise in D-2.
