Know Thy Opponent: Nooksack⨧
Know this. To be certain, these are two teams fighting tonight for their November. But Nooksack holds the decisive motivational edge, knowing they let the first meeting slip away from them. Adjustments will be made, new schemes implemented, eyes cleared, hearts filled, all the intangible stuff. Coaching, plus a D1 QB, and lots of motivation ...

Know Thy Opponent: Lynden Christian

Know Thy Opponent: Lynden Christian
Hold on, another time around. Lynden Christian comes off a very impressive 28-14 win over highly-ranked Nooksack last week. Jordan Riddle and QB Ty Van Dyken both rushed for over 100 yards. More remarkable, the Lyncs held NV’s D1-bound QB to just 145 passing. Astounding really. The question is, after battered & bruised by 3 Top 10 teams in ...

Know Thy Opponent: Mt. Baker

Know Thy Opponent: Mt. Baker
Another week, and another tilt (I like to write ’tilt’, makes me feel like an old-timey sportswriter) against another top-ten league opponent. Our few yet Mighty Trohahns can’t catch a break. Overmatched but not undaunted, Meridian faces 7th ranked Mt. Baker tonight. Mount Baker completely revamped their offense this year and adopted the Air Raid, after ...

Know Thy Opponent: Nooksack
In case you haven’t heard, the few-but-Mighty Trohahns play host to unbeaten Nooksack tonight. Apparently, it’s kinda a big deal. Though unbeaten and ranked in the top 3, many say that Nooksack hasn’t really been challenged or tested yet. Aside from the highly-touted Week 2 matchup with opposing 1A power Coupeville, Nooksack has been just ...

Know Thy Opponent: Lynden Christian

Another abbreviated missive at the end of a busy week. But then again, it’s LC. Scarcely know any opponent better than them. They’re big. They’re mean. They’re confident. And the Lyncs are 2-1 coming after a drubbing of Krusher of the Kush, Kashmir. Kickoff is 7PM at LC. This one is on KPUG tonight. Go ...

Know Thy Opponent: #4 Cascade Christian

Know Thy Opponent: #4 Cascade Christian
For the third time in 12 months, we get to see Cascade Christian, after splitting with them between a early nonconf loss and a playoff victory last year. CC may have fewer bodies this season than they’ve had in the past, but the players they return for 2017 are all studs. Eight starters on each ...

Know Thy Opponent: Blaine

Another abbreviated report this evening. Work is way overrated. Blaine got pretty well worked by D1-sensation Casey Bauman and associates last week, 6-45. Nooksack threw, ran, and any other such ball conveyance against the Borderites. Blaine was able to rush the ball—when they had it—against NV, with sophomore Oscar Caridad averaging just under 9 yard per carry. All ...

Know Thy Opponent: Anacortez

Know Thy Opponent: Anacortez
Hey. This thing still on? Welcome to another season Trojan fans. It’s been a busy week, apologies for an abbreviated write up. Anacortéz finished last year 1-8, but they return just about everyone. Senior Trystan Lowry returns as a multi-year starter at QB, and they have three senior returners on the offensive & defensive lines. ...

Know Thy Opponent: Connell

Know Thy Opponent: Connell
Good morning, Trohahn fans. When last we saw Connell, it was a fantastic finish to a tremendous game to close out an amazing championship season. Connell comes out of the mists of memory into the present as a 10-1 team, losing only to top-ranked Royal. They’re tough, mean, and multiple. The Herald previews the game thusly: ...
