First VV game I have been to this year and I was impressed with how hard the kids played. Down 16-3 and came back. Don't think that would have happened the last couple of years. VV is 2-4 and have lost 3 games by 10 points total so they are competing.
Like the previous poster, I would like to see Smith in the shotgun some also. That would just give him a little more time to make his reads and look over the field better.
Good luck the rest of the way Spartans! You have a tough 3 game stretch coming up.
