For the first time in 11 years, Licking Valley will not play its week one game against Sheridan. Instead, the Panthers travel to Jonathan Alder.

Coach Randy Baughman says he is disappointed the rivalry is over, but adds facing the Pioneers won't be a drop off by any means.

There are seven teams that play in the Pioneer Valley Conference. In 2005, four of those schools called themselves PVC champs.

Shenandoah was one of them, but you won't hear the Zeps talking much about it. Instead the Division V school is more focused on winning a title outright in 2006.

In this Coca-Cola Powerade Team Preview, WHIZ's Aaron Spragg explains how Shenandoah may reach its goal, even though it may take more than three yards and a cloud of dust.

Buckeye Trail was shocked when Caldwell won the PVC and made the playoffs last year. The Warriors had convincingly beat the Redskins in week two, but ended the season at a different end of the spectrum.

Young and inexperienced, Buckeye Trail had its moments, but in the end youth got the best of them. That won't be an excuse this season.

In 2006, the aged Warriors are out to be the new surprise team of the conference.

Newark Catholic takes it a step further. For the Green Wave every year is about making a run at a state championship.
