In the previous two seasons, Hillsboro-Central Valley has racked up 6,836 rushing yards in 24 games.

In 2016 — the last time the Burros competed at the Class 2A level — they finished with under 2,000 rushing yards in 10 games.

One of the major factors in the spike of rushing yards over the last few seasons has been H-CV’s experienced offensive line.

However, as H-CV gets ready for its season-opener Aug. 30 against Grafton, head coach Scott Olsen said the Burros offensive line has the biggest question marks going into the 2019 season.

Fortunately for Olsen, his crew returns about 86 percent of its rushing yards from 2018 . But replacing former blockers Seth Owens, Jake Moore, Connor Aanderud and Jacob Heinitz is going to be key.

“Trying to figure out who is going to start and who is going to play and who our backups are has been a point of emphasis these first few couple weeks,” Olsen said Tuesday.
