Sun Valley (2-9 & 1-6) has a new head coach running the show after the hiring of Drew Hackett to replace Tad Baucom. The Spartans will need a QB for the 2020 season after the announcement of Carson Black transferring out of Union Co. earlier in the spring was announced. Black, a rising sophomore led Union Co. in completions and threw for 2251 yards with 12 TDs as a freshman. Senior Deuce Wilson returns and will be the tailback in the Spartan offense (435 yds/2 TDs).
The Sun Valley defense will be anchored by Ethan Lunsford who was named 2nd Team All-UCHSF as a junior. The Spartans open the spring football season on Feb. 26 vs. Weddington.
