hahaHAA! Silver, you are seriously the man.
The Foothill-Basic football game is going to be EPIC. Too many kids who grew up together and played against each other most of their lives all putting it on the line to play in the State Championship game. If you want to see a great game, head over to Don Taylor Stadium! Battle for Boulder Highway II.
Come on Brewer. No explanation on your hits and misses last week?? You said Liberty didn't have athletes to keep up with the speed of Canyon Springs. But you did happen to mention Liberty's turnovers in reference to this week's game. I guess when you lack D1 talent you don't get much more than a minute of coverage on the podcast. To say the Patriots are physical is to put it modestly! Rimmey was shut down to 6 yards total on the ground. Out of the 6 players that ran the ball, only one amassed more than 50 yards (and that was the QB running for his life). Canyon Springs line was getting murdered on both sides of the ball. They only had 233 yards of total offense. Liberty, with all their mistakes, had 340 yards of total offense. I don't know but that sounds pretty athletic to me! But I do appreciate one thing regarding your weekly prognostications about the Liberty football team... every time you pick against them (which is most of the time), it really fires them up in preparation for the game. Thanks for the motivation!!
Got to agree with the w1536uy. You mention all the good athletes on the Del Sol squad saying this and that about them, but failed to mention the athletes on the Liberty side. I know that you know that most of Del Sol's starters play both ways. Even some of their lineman. Playing a physical team like Liberty, which has good depth on the D and O line should play in Liberty's favor. The first time Liberty and Del Sol met, coach Goroff offensive strategy was the same run the ball, but keep two O-line guys on #9 Samson Toalei. Now with the emergence of #79 Josh Lavau, #52 Remy Taeao and #76 Teddy Efthemeou Liberty's D-line will be tearing up the middle of Del Sol's offensive line which will free up LB's #9 Samson Toalei, #20 Albert Tai, # 43 Chanston Kahoaka and #54 Spencer Hill-Hale to contain Reed. Thought i mention a few defensive kids from Liberty with their numbers so everyone know who they are and make it easy to track them on the field. But again don't mention the Liberty athletes on your paper or podcast, the w1536uy and I will do it for you...I'm Just Saying....
Another story is James Poole used to play at Gorman as a freshman, but left to go to Cimarron for his remaining years. He was classmates and friends with many of the big seniors Gorman has.
I guarantee Moapa Valley will have just as much, if not more fans than Truckee at the 3A State Championship Game
