Montesano Tops Hoquiam, Elma Rolls Over Forks, and Evan Gentry's Big Play

This week we covered what happened over the weekend in local high school football.
Daniel provides a solid recap and analysis of Montesano's thrilling 20-19 victory over Hoquiam, and Justin tells the tale of Elma's dominating 62-13 win over Forks. Also, a little debate over who wins The Scrimmage Player of the Week honors, Hoquiam's Kenny Wakefield or Elma's Steven Persell.

We also discussed a very special event that occurred during a youth football game between Aberdeen and Montesano. A special youngster named Evan Gentry scored a 15-yard touchdown at the end of regulation and captured the hearts of the entire audience.

We wrapped up with some Mariners talk (yes, we're still talking baseball), and sprinkled in some Seahawks. Why didn't Michael Saunders play more this season? How close were the M's to signing Nelson Cruz? Is Richard Sherman overrated?

The answers to these questions and more are in this week's edition of The Scrimmage.

Eagles Soar, Bulldogs Bully, & an Interview with David Meltzer

Today we started off the show with a ton of local high school football talk, including recaps of the lopsided wins that both the Montesano Bulldogs and the Elma Eagles got on Friday, as well as the game between North Beach and Raymond, which turned out to be multi-day, double overtime, barnburner!

We then moved on to an interesting interview with David Meltzer, author and CEO, who is promoting both his book, Connected to Goodness, and the premiere of the NFL Films documentary, 'Warren Moon: A Football Life.'

We finished the show up with some Seahawks bye week talk.

Why We Love Bandwagoners, Local HS Football, and Seahawks/Broncos!

This week we started off the show with a discussion of why "bandwagon fan" is such an insult in the sports world.

Then we recapped the week's local HS Football action.
Congratulations to Tyler White of the Hoquiam Grizzlies for being selected as 'The Scrimmage High School Player of the Week' in addition to his 4 TD effort against the Tenino Beavers on Friday!

After the break we talked Seahawks, previewing the first regular season Superbowl rematch in 17 years, and discussing the season so far: what is going well, what needs work, and what's surprising?

We closed the show with a little Mariners talk.
