BUXTON - Lost in the shuffle of teams switching classes this fall was Hillsboro-Central Valley as the Burros were part of the group that dropped from 2A to Class A.

Grant Skager has been impressive running the football, he had 221 yards and three scores against Northern Cass. However defense has been the name of the game as H-CV has not allowed a point the last two weeks. Head coach Scott Olsen says that's the biggest reason for the success.
