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.

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!
