The Apple Valley football team is coming off of a state tournament season in 2016. They lost their starting quarterback and a handful of contributors from that squad, but they returned a solid overall team. Based off a 27-7 opening week victory over Hopkins, the Eagles look like they will be able to beat teams in a variety of ways.

Defensive back Chris Antholt got his hands on a pass to the outside that resulted in an interception. Later in the first half he would get his own interception. He read the pass to the flat, closed on it, stepped in front of the receiver and picked off the pass.

Jackson Green was the recipient of the Antholt tip. In the second half Green – ranked 319th in the senior class by NFN - would catch a short pass and used a physical run after catch to pick up a first down. Later, the senior showed off his hands – or at least one of his hands – with a one handed grab near the sidelines.
