Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the schedule is still to be determined. Check back here for updates!
Due to the CIF’s determination that all fall high school sports seasons in 2020-2021 will be delayed, the Sac Joaquin Section has issued new dates for all sports including football and here they are: SJS Sports Calendar for 20-21.
We are getting our new game schedule coordinated and will update the schedule as soon as it’s been determined.
It’s October, and that means it’s FVL time! The Placer varsity team begins defending its 2018 FVL title this week in Grass Valley, as they head to Nevada Union to take on the Miners on October 4th. Then there will be two home games in a row: October 11th against the Rio Linda Knights, and October 18th, Homecoming and Senior Night, against the Oakmont Vikings. They then travel to face the Ponderosa Bruins on October 25th, finishing up the regular season at home against the Lincoln Fighting Zebras on November 11th.
Every FVL team this year enters league with a winning record, so it should be an exciting and challenging season! Placer’s tough non-league schedule has prepared them and they are ready for the battles ahead!

Placer moves on to the semi finals of the Sac Joaquin Div III playoffs, where the Hillmen will face a team they scrimmaged way back in August, the River Valley Falcons! The Falcons, who were seeded 11th, have upset the first two teams they played in the playoffs, including the previously undefeated #3 seed, Merced. They are looking for their third upset, but the Hillmen will have a lot to say about that! Come on out to Le Febrve to cheer Placer on. Kickoff is at 7 pm on Friday, November 23. Winning this game earns a trip to the Section finals! Go Hillmen!
Foothill Valley League games are next on our schedule! Per FVL requirements the start times for our games will be different than in years’ past.

The freshmen and varsity teams are on byes this week, but you can get your Hillmen Football fix watching our JV, who are playing Del Campo at 6 pm Thursday, September 20, and are very happy to play after not having games the past two weeks.
Placer Varsity is playing El Dorado on Friday night: September 14, 2018! Unfortunately there won’t be a JV game again this week, but please come out early to Le Febvre. The snack bar will open at 6:00 PM so you’ll have time for a cheeseburger or tri tip sandwich, before grabbing a seat in the stands! And Friday is Senior Night, which will start at 6:55 PM. You won’t want to miss the ceremony honoring our awesome seniors and their escorts!
The Placer Freshmen Team will play Kennedy High School Thursday (September 13) at 5:30 PM.
There will be no JV game this week as Vista del Lago doesn’t have a JV team and unfortunately another JV opponent was unable to be scheduled.
