As I said in another thread, I believe that this year's sophomore class has the potential to be one of the truly great classes.    So, yes, the chance will be there if everything falls into place.

Some of them, particularly Cave and maybe Hott or Walton, will play a role this year.  For the others, their fate will be playing in the third and fourth quarters and not being alllowed to pass.  They need to use this year to learn all they can, because they'll have to play a major role as Juniors.

Tell ya what - I wish we could figure out how to double the size of the Capestrain kid.  Listed at 5'3" and  105 lbs., he lloks like a JFL kid in the wrong uniform. But he pulled one of the menest hits I've seen in HS.  A big freshman, #52 (Root?) had the ball rumbling down the sidelines.  Capestrain LEVELLED him in a sidelines tackle that was a real pad-popper.  

bigsmile.gif Next yearwill be one of those "rebuilding" years.

I didn't see the hit,(even though I remember #52 rambling down the field), but I did notice his size as I scanned the sheet. My hat's off to any kid who sticks his nose in there and plays with that small frame. He must be one tough nut.

You guys are right our sophs do have a chance to be very good as seniors.  There are some other good teams in the conference.  Jacksonville is always decent, Taylorville is always tough.  But, I went to the Lincoln Sophmore game Saturday and they looked pretty darn good.  They lost but they were up 16 to 6 at the end of the half.

No, there are some exellent juniors, including a couple of our best receivers and a linebacker (Hubbard) that the D1 schools should be taking a look at.  

We don't see to have a lot of juniors, but those we have will provide an excellent nucleus next year.

That doesn't change the fact that our sophomores are numerous, big, fast and capable.  They'll get their seasoning in the already safely won games this year and be ready to jump in where needed next year.

It's just been odd though that the great classes sem to arrive at two year intervals.  Many thought the 04 class (Peteman et al) was one of the best ever.  Personally, I think the '06 grup is even better.  Then we skip to the  current sophs who'll  be the leader in '08.  

The tradition appears to be in very good hands.

Here are the Juniors this year. I think you will see some contributers in the bunch, and some that will be even bigger contributers in 2007:


2 Rob Mosher WR 5'9" 175 11
16 Joe Marrin OLB 6'2" 185 11
18 Grant Anderson WR/OLB 5'11" 185 11
25 Josh Gossard RB/DB 5'11" 175 11
28 Scott Kren OL/DL 6'0" 200 11
39 Jack Duncan FB/ILB 5'8" 205 11
40 Mitch Murphy FB/OLB 5'8" 170 11
43 Leonard Hubbard FB/ILB 6'1" 220 11
51 Matt Selvaggio OL/DL/ILB 5'11" 175 11
52 Kelby Jasmon OL/DL 5'11" 205 11
54 Zack Moore OL/DL 6'2" 195 11
55 Matt Sartore OL/DL 5'10" 210 11
60 Kevin Dallavis OL/DL 5'9" 180 11
61 Casey Daley OL/DL 6'0" 220 11
72 Shawn Young OL/DL 5'11" 265 11
74 Jeremy Adams OL/DL 6'2" 275 11
79 Zach Higdon OL/DL 6'3" 260 11
80 Victor Kimberlin DB 5'10" 145 11
90 Tanner Sommer WR/DB 6'0" 170 11

In 2003, when we finished 2nd in the state, and again in 2005 when we won state there were about 9 or 10 seniors on the roster. So while 19 might be a fairly small bunch, it's not uncommon. Hope I didn't miss anyone.

THANK YOU!  Teetime....

size of the class is not always what matters..
last years seniors where small but out of 11.. seven started..not a bad ratio..
they put up with four years of comments and remarks..it over they have gone on ..

Now we are closing in on the 2006 and wishing the best for the ENTIRE team...
every player that puts on a gold helmet...

I would continue..but I'll just digress..
think I will visit Sacred Heart and light a few candles for upcomming games and general team health. ( if anyone would feel the need , Sacred Heart's doors are always open)

Hey guys.
Just a remined that we dont have to go to certain buildings or light candles to say hello to the "Big Guy."  Because of Jesus Christ's work on cross and His resurrection, we can have DIRECT access to the Father through our own prayers.  Jesus is our mediator, the one who makes us right with God and connects us to Him through our faith.

1 Timothy 2:5 says "For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus"  
He is all we need...not rituals or candles or whatever.

Hebrews chapters 8, 9, and 12 explain it more.

Ok, well, that is all.  Just a note from your friendly football fan theologian.  :)

thanks,
josh

HasBeen,
No... it's the small church on 12th street.
I think it is now called St. Katharine Drexel Parish..Years ago driving around I found out all the other larger churches are locked down most of the time..and here in this small neighborhood Sacred Hearts doors are always open. It just a really beautiful little church trying to keep its head above water.

St Pat's and Sacred heart Parishes were combined into St. Katherine Drexel five or ten years ago.  Up to now, they've had Sunday Masses at both.  My mom especially likes the Spanish Mass at the Sacred Heart 'campus'.  I've heard that the diocese wants to sell the St. Pat's church and rectory.

I can't imagine that they leave it open.  My wife's westside protestand chuch has been burgled so many times that I've lost count.

Old Fan,
All I can say is that I have driven to Sacred Heart at lunch hours , before work, even dashing in before games. Maybe the doors are only open during the day. But they were open. Anyway, everyone has rituals for  good luck....lighting candles is what I do...
I am sure a few people were wondering what I was up to  esp. during the playoffs last year..trust me that church was lit up.. to say the least.

see if it helps this year....
