SRV Week Six


The pecking order is starting to establish itself

Fruitland vs Weiser- 2 weeks ago, Fruitland was on top of the world with a 22 game winning streak. After losing to Middleton and Homedale, Fruitland suddenly finds themselves in unfamiliar territory. Weiser meanwhile is quietly having their best season in years. Both have a common opponent in Gooding, and theoretically, Fruitland should easily win this game, but that doesn't always happen. This game hinges on how Fruitland responds to the last 2 weeks (especially being shutout for the first time in forever). Other factors will include whether or not Fruitland goes back to throwing the football more, since their decision to go ground and pound against Homedale was a complete disaster. Fruitland 25 Weiser 19.

Homedale vs Vale- These 2 teams have somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 combined state championships. Homedale loudly announced they are legit title contenders by dominating Fruitland. Vale is decent this year, but is not a title contender in Oregon. Homedale 45-7.

Payette vs Parma- Someone is getting their first and only win of the season. Coin flip: heads equals Payette, Payette 18-14.

Parma to handle Payette @ 35-14.

Sep 27, 2018 has tomorrows Payette vs Parma score up as a 0-2 Parma win. Looks like a Payette forfeit.

Homedale has changed senior night from the Payette game in 2 weeks the Vale game tomorrow night.

Anyone hearing what might be going on with Payette football?

Payette has had a string of injuries, plus other players on academic probation on an already small roster, which led to them forfeiting against Parma. They apparently have 8 available players that could play right now, and there's a chance they could forfeit the rest of the season.

It might vary from school dist to school dist., but i didnt think academic issues were addressed until somewhere in november? I heard just like a few years ago in Payette with basketball, some kids failed drug screening?

  • @Shane Prince I have a ring of College Recruiters that are always looking for that star athlete. I send them Information on the players that I coach who have mentioned that they wish to play at the next level. In the past, I have submitted about 7 players from my team, another 3-4 from Sugar-Salem to try to help those kids out and the random one or two that follow me on twitter to help get their name out there. I don't have many connections at the moment, but they include, Colorado State University, University of Northern Colorado , Air Force Academy, School of Mines (Colorado), Fort Lewis (Colorado), University of Wyoming, University of Nevada Las Vegas, University of Idaho and Idaho State University. University of Idaho has recently changed their recruiting coordinator and my connection at Idaho State has moved on, but I am sure I could find their replacements. If you know of any excellent athletes, that would like to play at the next level, please reply with their information here. If you could include the following information, it would be greatly beneficial: Name High School High School Size (5A-1AD2) Positions Height and Weight Wingspan Vertical 40 Time Bench - Squat - Clean - Max (3 reps) Senior Year Stats (If the athlete was injured most of the year, include Junior year Stats) Also include both a teaser highlight reel and a full highlight reel. A teaser reel is what college coaches mostly watch. It is your biggest plays and also biggest side plays (Blocking as a WR or RB for key plays of others) and is no longer than about 1-2 minutes. When recruiters see what they like in the teaser reel, they will normally watch the full 4-5 min highlight reel to see the rest of your capabilities. Do not include any contact or academic information . If the recruiters like what they see, they have the means of contacting the recruits high school and coach or AD to get this information on their own. They will also get information on academics at this time from the coach or AD, so don't post the kids GPA or Test Scores. This is purely to help get more athletes noticed from the Great State of Idaho. Even if only a few players get contacted, it will have been a success. Thank you. Coach Newell
  • What high school seniors do we have this year that are planning on playing at the next level? It seems that we have a lot of kids going to smaller schools as well as some playing division 1 football every year. I would love to know who we have going where so I can continue to watch and support our Idaho boys.
