Spring Valley notes: The Vikings, 3-33 over the past three seasons, are being whipped into shape by no-nonsense new coach Miles Aldridge, a long-time college assistant who became a high school head coach for the first time last season at Mullins … SV will ditch the spread offense in favor of a triple-option approach similar to the offense run by Georgia Tech.
Camden notes: The Bulldogs, fresh from an 8-4 campaign, will miss the services of senior running back SaVonn Wingate, who suffered a season-ending knee injury in spring practice. Junior Jo Jo Brevard will open in place of Wingate … Camden is also breaking in a new quarterback, be it senior Dillon Morrow or sophomore Josh Council … Senior Alvonta’ Jenkins is a proven threat as a receiver and a kick return specialist … Nose guard Jerel Robinson, a four-year varsity vet, is the heart and soul man on defense.
Series history: The teams square off for the first time since 1997. Each team won four times when they were region rivals in Class 4A for eight seasons (1976-1983), but Spring Valley gained an overall 10-7 edge in the series by winning the last five meetings with the Bulldogs.
