Team: Conestoga Valley

Classification: 5A

Head Coach: Gerad Novak (0-0)

Novak’s return after a seven-year hiatus from the Buckskins’ sideline is already a welcome boost in Witmer. Now it’s up to the players to follow suit.

Senior quarterback Grant Stoltzfus also returns after accumulating nearly 5,000 passing yards in three seasons under the previous regime. The four-year signal-caller threw for 2,065 yards and 18 touchdowns last year and will benefit from having four of his top seven receivers suit-up again in 2016, including Jose Barbon and Connor Brinton.

What’s more, Briton paved the way with 555 yards via the ground in 2015, and could be looking for a greater haul with the defensive-minded Novak in charge — and potentially, good things in store at the Valley this fall.
