Ditter takes over for Jeff Jamieson, who went 64-58 in 13 years at Selah. Jamieson led the Vikings to back-to-back state playoff berths in 2008 and 2009. He now is an assistant coach at West Valley-Yakima, his alma mater.
Ditter was the head coach at West Valley from 2007-09.
The key to stopping the Vikings could be how you stop WR Ergeson, who led the CWAC with 64 receptions last season.
The talented senior, who was a first-team All-CWAC selection at WR, didn't reach the end zone a lot (3 TDs), but at 10.3 yards a catch, he's perhaps the best possession wideout in the league, and Towery will no doubt keep looking for his top target.
Another critical element for Selah is the return of an experienced offensive line. The more time it can give Towery to throw and find his marks, the better off the Vikings will be.
On defense, three linemen and three linebackers return as part of an impressive front seven.
