on the eve of the 2010 high school football season comes word from Elk Grove coach Chris Nixon that two key players may not see action Friday night. Stud running back/defensive back Deon Ransom turned his ankle in last Saturday's scrimmage against Del Oro and isn't full speed. During Wednesday's practice senior quarterback Archie Schuster rolled his ankle.
In a text message to me, Nixon said he may hold both out of the non-conference game and go with sophomore Jacob Hinegardner at QB and another soph, Robert Frazier, at RB.
The Thundering Herd debuts their new pistol offense at 7:15 p.m. Friday night.
On another note the new snackbar/bathroom facility won't be completed. You'll find a row of portapotties. No telling how they'll handle the sale of their hotdogs and hamburgers.
Once completed the new facility will be really nice.
