Sonora football and playoffs are words used almost every year to describe the Wildcats, except for the last two. For consecutive seasons, the Wildcats have finishes 4-6 and watched postseason from the outside looking in, something that doesn’t sit well with head coach Bryan Craig and his staff.

“We have to get back to playoffs, it’s unacceptable not to be in the playoffs,” Craig said. “It’s an automatic here, that’s what we do. We play good football and we get ourselves into the playoffs. All of us, including the players and coaching staff, we all worked hard in the offseason to get ourselves ready.”

Bret Harte didn’t find much success on the gridiron last year, but that had more to do with execution and the Bullfrogs instability at the most important position on the football team.

The Bullfrogs started two quarterbacks and were never able to find an established signal-caller until late in the year.

Jake Bailey took over the reins at quarterback after a player quit mid-season in 2013, and showed promise, but he graduated this summer.

Head coach Jon Byrnes, who is entering his second year, will be hand over the keys to the Bullfrog offense to Michael Ziehlke, a 6-foot-4, 165-pound junior.

For The Union Democrat

For Calaveras Redskins seventh-year head coach Jason Weatherby, the 2014 football season will begin in a way he has yet to experience in his coaching career. 

When the Skins take the field Friday night in Stockton to face the McNair Eagles, they will do so as outright defending Mother Lode League champions. 

If Calaveras expects to repeat as MLL champions, they will have to rely on a few seasoned seniors, and a large group of talented juniors.

Calaveras is replacing 20 graduating members of the 2013 team, and the junior class is stepping up and accepting the challenge.

“The juniors on the team have really come a long way over the summer,” Weatherby said. “I don’t feel like they are behind because they made such positive strides in camp.”
