high school football: On the verge of falling to 1-3, the Gators erase a double-digit deficit in the second half to grab thrilling win
The Green Valley High football team might be as good as advertised, after all.

Green Valley opened the season ranked No. 3 in the Sun’s rankings, but lost two of its initial three games in nearly dropping out of the top 10.

Green Valley football coach tries to downplay high expectations
Thursday, August 29, 2013
high school football:
Expectations are so high for the Green Valley football team, some believe they are the favorites to win the Sunrise Region and not three-time defending region champ Liberty. Green Valley coach Brian Castro isn’t buying into it that notion. “It’s not our focus. We’re focused on what we’re doing on the practice field and what to do to get better,” Castro said. “The kids know there is a little bit of buzz out there. We’re not going to sneaking up on anybody. This year, people kind of know that we’re here and we’re definitely expecting to get everyone’s best efforts.”
