After almost a year of uncertainty we are cleared to play! We are looking forward to probably the most special and important Hillman football schedule in all of Placer’s incredible history! We are so grateful for the coaches and the players who have kept up with the conditioning and practice protocols that were allowed this past year to stay ready and prepared, and now that the COVID numbers are decreasing and we are cleared to play, we couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to once again hit hard and have fun and play Hillman football!

And there might be one final super special game, TBD! We will keep you posted!
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!
