LA CRESCENTA — Crescenta Valley High football Coach Paul Schilling has a quarterback competition to play out and eight first-year players to work into the mix as the Falcons forge through spring practices.
"We're trying to work out our personnel, trying to figure out who's where," Schilling said. "We've got a lot of young guys up. We're trying to figure it out personnel-wise and then just get going. After all the time in the weight room and all, it's just fun to get out here and run around."
But for all the unknown variables there still remains some constants from last year's team, which went 6-5 and qualified for the CIF playoffs.
The offensive line, anchored by returning seniors right guard Naz Erdoglyan and left guard Andrew Kiorkof, figures to be the team's main strength.
"Our offensive line is our best thing," said Schilling, whose team continues spring practices through June 8. "We've got two starters returning, they're our guys. We're going to probably try to do stuff through our offensive line. We always throw the ball, but we might try to pound it a little more this year than we did last year."
