Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Dec. 31, 2014 5C Brade named as football coach Greg Knight Sports Writer Feather River College, once again, has hired a new face to lead the Golden Eagles&apos; football program going into 2015. After working for the past year as an assistant in the Mid-York Pop Warner system of Central New York, longtime coach Scott Brade has been named in an email from FRC vice president Dr. Derek Lerch as the school's pick to lead the football team. Brade's most recent coaching experience at the college level was a nearly three-year stint as special teams coordinator, linebackers' coach and strength and conditioning coordinator at New York's Morrisville State College. Brade held that position between 2010 and 2013. An entry on Brade's LinkedIn page describes the fun he has had in past few years coaching his son at the Pop Warner level. "I helped out coaching my son's football team," Brade wrote. "Had a great time and enjoyed teaching the sport I love to some great kids. They really absorbed what I was trying to teach them. It was quite different teaching 10 year old kids compared to 20 year old young men. A very rewarding challenge. I learned as much from them as they did from me." In a brief phone interview, Brade said he would be arriving in Quincy at some point in the coming week following a cross-country drive from New York. Former FRC head coach Bart Andrus was rumored to have been among the pool of applicants, though the college would not confirm his candidacy. Crazy for the Quazies , locally at our four high to the home team. FROM THE SPORTS DESK GREG KNIGHT Sports Writer Much to the chagrin of most Plumas County sports fans, I am an unashamed, unabashed fan of the Seattle Seahawks and you can bet your last dollar that if I could undergo some sort of medical procedure to make my blood run green and blue, I would invest in it. " The Hawks (ahem, the greatest team on earth) are blessed to have the 12th Man, otherwise known as most of the sodden drunks in Seattle on any given Sunday. Those fans make CenturyLink Field the most raucous Stadium since the times of the Roman Colosseum. If you have never been inside CenturyLink " during a game, let me assure you that it is one of the loudest sounds you will ever hear. An example of fans getting into the game can be found schools and at Feather River College when heated rivalry or conference games are played. One of the most notable are the Quincy Quazies -- when they get riled up at a home basketball or volleyball game you'd think you were at an Ireland vs. England rugby game the way they cheer on the Trojans. And then there is every last Brit, Aussie and other international import that FRC head soccer coach Don Williams has managed to sign to his squads. I have taken to calling them the "Good-Natured Hooligans of FRC" because, when they get going, and if you close your eyes and listen to them, you might swear you were at a soccer match just before a riot breaks out. With this in mind, it stunned me last week to find an archived Web report from a Washington Huskies sports analyst's thoughts on "civility" in the way fans cheer on their sports heroes. In the dissertation, the writer stated that it was bad form to use chants against a visiting team, that to do so was providing an unfair advantage And then, to top it off, while I was at the Lady Eagles volleyball match against American River College earlier this month, the one where we made it to the Final Four on a 3-0 victory, I was galled to hear departing ARC fans using bleepable expletives about our "crowd" while they were traversing the parking lot. I wanted to say something to them, but alas I kept my trap shut and drove back to the office. First off, if I was to ever i advocate the Quazies or the hooligans go away, I would be run out of Plumas County on the next Burlington Northern. You just don't tamper with the fan base, you just don't. Second, those rabid fans are like having another teammate on the floor and, last I checked, as long as the crowd does not violate the rules set down by CCCAA or CIF- Northern Section, let it be. Let's not ever forget that the students in the stands may be rabid, loud and confound other teams' plans to beat us, but never forget there is a lot of class among those fans in Plumas County. YEAR IN REVIEW, from page 3C previously logged a pair of wins on a 3-1 beating of Maxwell and a 3-0 (25-14, 25=19, 25-11) blanking of Biggs. Oct. 29 With a six-game winning streak under its belt, the Greenville Lady Indians volleyball team (7-13, 4-1) has been resurgent and kept its winning ways going last Tuesday night with a 3-0 (25-14, 25-17, 25-7) win over CORE Butte Charter School of Chico. The Indians had managed, over the course of the past month and until their game with Westwood, to only allow opponents wins in four sets -- and have managed to log a statistical record of 5.1 kills per set, put up 69 total blocks, hit for 169 service aces an d average three aces per set. Nov. 5 With a season of wins rivaling that of the Lady Golden Eagles of Feather River College, the Quincy High School Lady Trojans volleyball squad took the Mid-Valley League championship after a 3-1 (21-25, 25-20, 25-18, 25-18) road win over Portola last Thursday night. The Trojans had met with (and beat) the Tigers twice before, with a 2-0 win at the Los Molinos tournament Sept. 12 and a 3-0 victory at home Oct. 14. Nov. 12 Youth and energy started the Golden Eagles out on the right foot Monday, Nov. 3, as the FRC squad bested the Simpson University Red Hawks junior varsity team at home on, a 97-48 final score. Although the Golden Eagles ended with a 4-20 overall record and a 1-9 record in the Golden Valley Conference last year, the hopes for a winning 2014-15 season are being pinned on a group of freshmen that includes Jarrell Tare, Nick Longmire, Namuji Madoshi, Derrek Gordon and Quincy native Ty Morrison. Nov. 19 The Lady Golden Eagles volleyball team extended its tradition of excellence Wednesday, Nov. 12, by edging toward a fifth Golden Valley Conference championship in a row with a 3-0 (25-10, 25-12, 25-18) win over Shasta at home -- and seized the "five-peat" crown two days later with a 3-1 win over Lassen in Susanville. The championship is enhanced by the fact that head coach Sarah Ritchie's past five teams have won those titles as the unbeaten leaders of the pack in GVC competition since 2009. This season, that crown comes with a 10-0 league record and a 22-2 tally on the year. Nov. 26 Fnr fho first tim ginc 2009, the Greenville Indians boys' basketball team will have a new leader at the helm after the unexpected retirement of Russ Crouch as head coach last week. Crouch, who led the indians to a 14-13 record overall and a 6-2 tally in the Pioneer-Mountain League last season, resigned without notice Monday, Nov. 17. Taking up the mantle of leading the Indians will be Sierra Institute for Community and Environment Executive Director Jonathan Kusel, an avid basketball fan, JV and' junior high school coach and supporter of athletics in Indian Valley. Dec. 3 A win in the second round of the playoffs just wasn't in the cards for the Lady Golden Eagles soccer squad as it fell 3-0 to the Fresno City College Lady Rams on Wednesday, Nov. 26, in Fresno. Even though the season is over for Feather River College on both the women's and men's sides, a number of Golden Eagle players have been honored in the Golden Valley Conference. On the women's team, Ryann Abeyta, Shannell McDonnell and Hope Giumti-Vasquez were named first team all-conference. Josefin Leberger, Danielle Smith and Samantha Buchanan were named to the second team. Sherifatu Sumaila was named Offensive Player of the Year. Abeyta, McDonnell, Vasquez, Leberger, Sumaila and keeper Stacy Cavill were also named academic all-conference. Dec. 10 The Quincy High School boys' basketball team sank the hopes of the North Lake Tahoe Lakers last week as they began their 2014-15 season on the road, taking a 72-54 win that saw Brady Rick and Jakob Grammer each score 17 points -- and the team score 36 points in each half. i Dec. 17 The everlasting rivalry between the Portola Tigers and the Quincy Trojans is alive and well -- and it gave birth to a "W" in the win-loss column for the Tigers as they squeaked past Quincy, 65-62, in the headline match of the 2014 Tiger Classic on Saturday night. Both teams came into the game at 2-0, with Quincy defeating Biggs, 71-31, and Modoc, 73-53, while Portola bested the same two teams on 68-37 and 50-36 final scores, respectively. Dec. 24 The Greenville boys' varsity team won the Holiday Small School Classic, with Walker Meyers winning tournament MVP last week in Elk Creek. Fellow varsity players Justus Eaglesmith and Christian Beres were part of the all-tournament team as well. iBi""'TALS "" rvi heSS& be e ,.o..ow_.,,,,.. ="=: J Jii Snow Removal Service 00'ectory0000, , ,  ' Log Splitters " :.,.; - _ . ..... <:::::  Holiday Light Installation " ,i " & Removal J's Got You Covered!
