ROANOKE (WSLS 10 SPORTS) - Last season was a reload year for the Titans, in hopes of being able to come out all weapons firing in 2016. Coach Scott Weaver's Titans have been playoff bound six of the seven years at Hidden Valley, and while last year's 3-7 mark still sent them into the postseason, the first round exit that followed wasn't ideal. This year, the team returns all but one starter, including Ryan Mitchell, a standout wide receiver who caught 75 passes and quarterback Jonah Fitzgerald who aired it out for more than 25 hundred yards and 28 touchdowns in his sophomore season. The Titans are loaded with returners, every where you turn.

"Our tailback, our quarterback, all of our receivers but one, and all our offensive line and our H back, and defensively we have to replace one corner, but other than that everybody got experience which is a good thing. We didn't go 3-8 for nothing, so we've got a lot of kids experience, a lot of big games and they got to take a long playoff trip and hopefully that comes back as a reward this year," said Weaver.

Hidden Valley opens their season at Patrick Henry on Friday.
