MAGNA VISTA, Va. – They are the three P’s: Perennial-Piedmont-Power.
The Warriors are a perennial playoff squad under veteran head coach Joe Favero. He returns veteran quarterback Caleb Lynch from a team that finished 5-6.
Last season, Magna Vista fell to Bassett in the Region 3D quarters, but despite their tough losses, they’ve long been known for their quick-strike capabilities.
And, one of their star players is now a D-1 talent – Tyler Johnson, from Magna Vista’s offense, is now a freshman with Penn State.
This season, the team is expecting the firepower to start up front with a power run game, which should help to compliment the spread offense we’ve become accustomed to.
“We will probably be a little more downhill running game. We have four backs over 200 pounds, so they’re a little bigger than we have had in the past and so will be a little more downhill run a game. But we’re still going to spread the ball out and get guys the ball in space,” Head Coach Joe Favero explained.
“We worked really hard in the off-season to get a lot better. Our team has been going at it non-stop to make sure those losses turn into wins and really reflect what we’ve been doing in the weight room and things like that. You can expect a lot of touchdowns, a lot of good plays, a lot of big passes, big runs – everything,” senior quarterback Caleb Lynch said.
Magna Vista will open the season by hosting Class 3 State Finalist Liberty Christian Academy on August 26.
