Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Aug. 26, 2015 lC " AND Greg Knight Sports Editor High school football begins the 2015 season this Friday night. Three teams will open the year at home, while another will start on the road. Here is a preview of those games Quincy v. Colusa 7 p.m. -- FRC Stadium The Trojans open at home Friday night against the Colusa RedHawks in a non-conference matchup at Feather River College. Last season, Quincy went 4-6 overall, with a 3-3 record in the Mountain-Valley League. The RedHawks went 3-7 overall, with a 3-2 record in the Sacramento-Valley League. The RedHawks lost eight seniors to graduation this year, though 12 players will step up as senior team leaders this season. Junior quarterback Lucas Davidson, who converted from a defensive tackle in 2014, will reportedly lead them. On the Quincy side of the ball the jury is still out as to who will be taking the snaps -- it is still unknown ff it will be sophomore Jake Rick or someone else at this point. Head coach CB Brown has been mum on the subject so far. One bright spot for Brown is the seven returning seniors on the team: Lane Lamar, Chris Dorris, Blake Culver, Perry Greene, Noah Ray, Riley duPont and Matthew Abramson will be the leaders on the field Cody Morrison, an incoming junior for the Quincy Trojans this season, goes for the kickoff in a game from 2014. This year's team will also bring size and stature -- five of the Trojans stand at six feet or.taller -- though some true power ought to come from the talents of the 5-foot, 6-inch Lamar at center. Greenville v. Butte Valley 7 p.m. -- Greenville HS Last season, Greenville took the long drive to Dorris for the opener of the 2014 season. Despite the Indians' best efforts, a sputtering defense allowed the Butte Valley Bulldogs to rack up a 33-14 win. The Indians would go on to lose three of the next four games before turning it all around, on a 1-4 record, against Herlong. The next. time Greenville lost a game was in the first round of the Division VI playoffs against Big Valley. Ending the season with a trip to the playoffs and a 6-5 overall record, 4-2 in league, the Indians are looking to start the season offright under head coach Mike Chelotti. Ray Bustamante is slated to start at quarterback, with Darian Potts and Sheridan Kusel in the backfield. The key for Greenville will likely be an effective implementation of the veer, an offensive system brought on by Chelotti this season If the offense can learn to move as one, with Bustamante or backup Brent Washoe keeping ice in their veins when it comes to the option, Matt Remington, a Portola player who graduated in June, takes the ball down the field against Quincy last season. we may see a high-scoring 10-game stretch. Portola v. Incline Village 7:30 p.m. -- Portola HS The Tigers are looking to have a spectacular season in 2015 -- truth be told, anything would be better than the way the 2014 season ended. After beating Incline on the road, 47-45 in overtime, the Tigers were only able to muster one more win on the season, a 46-20 win against Weed at home. The 2014 campaign ended with a 2-7 record overall and a 0-5 tally in league. Fast forward to 2015. Head coach Steve Heskett is staying with his quarterback, multi-sport senior Evan Leal and will utilize a variety of weapons in the backfield. That offensive push will come from running backs Edgar Cuevas, Patrick Remington, Koji Peiler and Memo Ruiz. The long bombs and tight spirals from Leal will likely go to wide receivers Dominic Vukobradovich and George Ourjanian. One of the main factors Heskett believes will help his team be ready is the fact that he gave them an extra week of summer vacation before starting hell week earlier this month. And when it Comes to See Football, FROM THE SPORTS DESK GREG KNIGHT Sports Editor Finally... This Friday night will be the best night of my life -- so far this year -- as football returns to the gridirons of Plumas County. No more will I be stuck behind this desk, adding pounds to my middle, and not getting enough outdoor time and exercise. Nope. I'll be driving halfway to the moon and back by mid-season following all the teams and, most importantly, I'll be up and active for the first time since Little League ended. That is why I love covering football. Whether it is at Portola, Quincy, Greenville or Feather River College home games, I always find myself cheering on from the sideline. Plus, I probably walk (jog) two miles every game following the teams up and down the field. So yes, finally, football is in the air and I could not be any happier. page 5C , 'See Sports desk, page 6C iiiiiiiiili!iiiiii iiiiii?
