Foothill Valley League Play Begins This Week!

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!

Go Hillmen!

Hillmen look to bounce back against Pioneer Tonight

Following their season opening loss to Nevada Union, the Hillmen will look to bounce back against Pioneer tonight when they travel to Woodland to take on the Patriots.  Placer’s offense will look to build off of its three touchdown performance in the second half last week.  All eyes will be on the offensive line tonight as the boys up front will look to set the tone for the offensive attack.  Defensively, Michael Dowmen, and Ryan Gray and company will be in charge of shutting down the Patriots Wing-T attack which amassed 254 yards offensively in a 14-7 loss against Cordova last week. Head Coach Joey Montoya, who coached the Patriots from 2004-06 will be making his first trip back to the place where he began his head coaching career since he returned to his alma mater in 2007.  If you can’t make it to the game, tune in to 950AM KAHI to hear the action and follow us for live updates on Twitter!

Montoya, Placer seeking 3rd straight PVL title in ’14

Beginning with it’s battle with Nevada Union tonight, Placer and head coach Joey Montoya will be seeking their 3rd straight PVL title in ’14. The dawn of a new season brings with it a sense of excitement and a fresh set of challenges, but the  goal remains the same: keep the PVL banner on the Hill.  Following an undefeated league campaign in 2012, Placer followed that up with a strong performance in league play (4-1) to capture yet another championship last season. The road through the Pioneer Valley League will be a challenging one, with Bear River featuring a physical and talented team, Lincoln returning several key starters and hiring a new respected coach,  Colfax is always tough, and co-champs Center has talent once again at a few skill positions. However, lead by several returning seniors and a strong junior class,  Placer is poised to defend it’s crown in what promises to be another exciting season! Read about the 2014 season preview in today’s Auburn Journal.
