FROM STAFF REPORTS
APPLE VALLEY • With most of the Mojave River League football teams losing key players to graduation, Apple Valley figures to be a contender for the league title.
The Sun Devils went 5-6 and finished third in league last season, but they return 16 players who either started or saw significant playing time. One of the returners is quarterback Ben Quiroz, who racked up more than 1,900 yards of total offense.
They also have five impact sophomores ready to start this year, including middle linebacker Mason Kelly.
