2018 High School Football Preview: North Valley Knights

A change in offensive schemes could lead to a change in fortunes for North Valley in 2018.

Posted: Aug 23, 2018 5:13 PM

GRANTS PASS—North Valley had a rough go of it in 2017.

A 2-7 record gave back all the gains the team made with an 8-2 showing the year before.

For the new season though, a big change is coming as head coach Neil DeForrest has decided to go from a spread offense back to a Wing T offense.

The goal is to cater to his team’s strengths—its duo of four-year starters on the offensive line make that unit its biggest strength.

"We're going to be running the ball a lot this year more than anything,” senior offensive lineman Zach Farmer said. “It's more of a smashmouth (style of play), getting it done and just running the ball as hard as we can."

While the line play is going to be key for North Valley, the name you’ll hear mentioned the most is junior quarterback Toren Tuttle.

He dazzled as a sophomore starter, and now possessing an arm that’s a year stronger, he’s a highlight reel waiting to happen.

"You're going to notice that just physically he's gotten taller, he's gotten a lot bigger, he's been in the weight room as well as just natural growth,” DeForrest said. “ His arm is a heck of a lot stronger. He's got a year under his belt and he's accepted the role as a quarterback and that's take charge and be the guy that's making sure things are being done properly."
