Camas Rolls Up Prairie 52-14

Written by Bryan Levesque on October 17, 2009

Camas had little trouble with the host Falcons in their 52-14 win Friday night. Prairie did strike first as Kyle Wiley ran in from 5 yards out, however after that it was all Camas.

Papermakers QB Logan Grindy was 17/25 for 282 and 2 TD, and RB Tyler Fisher added rushing TD’s as well as a 91 yard kick off return to start the 3rd quarter.

With the win, Camas improves to 6-1 and 3-0 in league. The Papermakers will host Fort Vancouver (2-5 0-3) on Friday.

Prairie falls to 2-5 and 1-2 in league with the loss. The Falcons will travel to Union (6-1 3-0) on Friday for a 5pm game.

    Makers were solid last night on both sides of the ball, including special teams. They are very physical team. Week 9 will be the headliner, and Doc Harris will be a great setting for it. Last game before a face lift for this historic stadium.

  2. hjuen23 on October 17th, 2009 5:28 pm

    the union/camas game will have bleachers at each endzone to compensate for there not being enough seating

  3. GSHL Observer on October 17th, 2009 8:42 pm

    Great win against a cellar dweller. Basque in whatever you need to but you have not even begun to realize the team you are about to play. I wish you luck which you will absolutely need to even come close. Doc Hairless is far from a great setting. Why is the Camas/Union game not being played at a real stadium?

  4. DCGardner on October 17th, 2009 8:46 pm

    Because they played the game at McKenzie last year, and instead of choosing the smart location they decided to be “fair” and go to the cruddy stadium.

    Doc Harris may be historic, but lets face it, for this kind of game McKenzie is the only real choice. And to be quite honest, “Homefield Advantage” in my opinion has never been that big of an advantage in High School Football.

  5. GSHL Observer on October 17th, 2009 9:02 pm

    Doc Hairless might be an adequate, historic soccer (futbol) stadium but for real football it is an embarassment. End zone bleachers, really? Ah, I guess it’s better than running around the edges to catch the game even though you would need to bob and weave through the crowd and the rotten egg smell. Do they even have a concession stand in Camas cause I want to compare the chili cheese dogs they have at Kiggins to the ones they have in Camas?

  6. GSHL Observer on October 17th, 2009 9:22 pm

    Does Logan Grindy really live across the street from Fishback Stadium in Washougal and go to Camas High?

  7. gshlfootball fan on October 17th, 2009 9:34 pm

    Grindy does in fact live in Washougal. But that being said if a school grants an exemption then there is no issue. We have to let the kids play the game. so many times we get wrapped up with this player and that player who are not playing for the correct school. Does it really matter?

  8. Camas Fan on October 17th, 2009 10:27 pm

    Yes, Camas is embarrased by our measely stadium, if you can call it that. I don’t know why we don’t just play all of our football games away and save other teams the trouble, especially Union, they don’t have time to deal with us because they’re stepping up to 4A next year. But that’s ok, we’ll just beat the same “cellar dwellars” over and over again and listen to everyone say how great a team Union was for beating the same teams. And no, we don’t have any consessions either.

    It’s great to live in Camas.

  9. DCGardner on October 17th, 2009 11:37 pm

    It might just be me, and I’m just saying this, did I detect a hint of sarcasm there.

    And don’t be so sad about us going up to 4A Camas Fan, http://www.camas.wednet.edu/chs/info/chs_profile.pdf
    If that’s correct than you have around 1600 students this year as well, give or take a couple.

    But, according to THIS, http://www.wiaa.com/classification/schools08-10.aspx

    Your coming right on up with us Camas! It’s going to be great fun!

    Welcome to the big leagues.

  10. gshl on October 18th, 2009 9:37 am

    Of course it matter that kids play in the schools they’re supposed to play at!!!!

  11. Sports Fan on October 18th, 2009 1:27 pm

    GSHL Observer, if Union is so good like you say, why are you worried about one player.

  12. Amazed on October 18th, 2009 3:08 pm

    Camas Fan, I find it a little odd that you say your from Camas but if you really were you would know that Doc Harris has consessions. But above all of that who really cares what type of food a stadium is selling, the reason your their is to watch a great football game so thats too bad if the food isn’t up to your standards. And whoever is talking about Grindy, he lives just on the Washougal side of the Camas/Washougal boundary line but there is nothing wrong with that because he has been granted a boundary exception since he was a 7th grader in middle school. People need to stop being so petty and just let the kids play football.

  13. greater saint on October 18th, 2009 3:09 pm

    ok so cams does too have concessions there behind the home side… and doc harris is being redone after the last game of the season and my possibly be the best stadium in all of Washington…. new turf home side is gonna hold 3-4 thousand and the away side is gonna hold 1 thousand.. those are the rumors floating around so we will see

  14. greater saint on October 18th, 2009 6:00 pm

    if camas is moving up to 4A the rivalry between them and kelso will also be renewed

  15. Camas Fan on October 18th, 2009 6:01 pm

    I know this picture is horrible, but if you really want to see some blueprints for the new Doc Harris, then take a look:
    http://camas.wednet.edu/district/business_services/bond_projects/Board%20Presentation%20Sept%202009.pps#7

    What we can easily see from this is away side stands that go from about the 25 to the other 25. As for the home side, thats just a jumbled mess but we can assume that the home stands go from goal line to goal line, maybe a little more. Consessions, locker rooms and restrooms are still behind the home side. Parking is expanded one aditional row, which still isn’t nearly enough.

    If you didn’t believe it, now you do. Doc Harris (name change?) will be as good as McKenzie.

  16. camas alumni on October 18th, 2009 6:08 pm

    i looked at that slide show and you cant even see whats happening it just a blur of black and white

  17. DCGardner on October 18th, 2009 7:03 pm

    Oh please, the rivalry between Camas and Kelso?

    Nuh uh, its Camas and Union now and forever baby. Get used to 2nd Place.

  18. greater saint on October 18th, 2009 7:55 pm

    camas likes to rival with the best and so camas main rival will be union but camas and kelso have a tradition of rivalry

  19. Don on October 18th, 2009 8:32 pm

    While it is true that the new Doc Harris stadium will be exceptional, it is the quality of the kids that are coming through that football program. Props to the coaches, parents and volunteers that make it a top notch program in 3A or 4A.

  20. GSHL Observer on October 18th, 2009 9:15 pm

    I love rivalry games! Isn’t the real rivalry Camas vs. Washougal? This is the ancient history people in those communities constantly talk about. Rumors of a renovated stadium crack me up. What are they gonna call it Doc Fishhead?

  21. 40 on October 18th, 2009 9:25 pm

    I almost feel bad for you observer. The only thing you do when you come on here is to complain or make fun of other things or people. You seem like a real winner.

  22. DCGardner on October 18th, 2009 9:34 pm

    It’s just a little rowdy trash talk, any fan worth their salt throws out some of it every once in awhile.

  23. Ketto on October 18th, 2009 9:35 pm

    Wow, it really seems that all Union fans know how to do around here is ride their highhorse right on through to every Camas related page on this site. Regardless of who wins, it’s pretty pathetic. It’s great being in the same bracket as Bellevue to shut you guys up all the time. It happened in Football, it happened in Basketball, and it’ll keep happening until you guys lose the egos. You guys are exactly why NOBODY in GSHL likes you collectively as a school or as a sports team.

    Stay classy, Union fans, stay classy.

  24. DCGardner on October 18th, 2009 9:50 pm

    Ketto,

    Union fans have no reason not to be on the highorse since no one in all of SW Washington has the ability to knock them off of it. Atleast Union has made it to the point to actually be knocked off by a team in a championship game. I guess Camas can say that about soccer.

    And to be quite frank, if every school in the GSHL hates us, it’s nothing but a case of sour grapes.

    Stay inferior bud, stay inferior.

  25. Ketto on October 18th, 2009 10:01 pm

    Yeah, Camas could say that about soccer. They could also say they were the first school in the state of Washington to claim both Boys & Girls 3A GSHL State Soccer Championships in the same year…. Then the boys made it to the finals the next year to be knocked off by a team that was investigated for cheating, then claimed the state title again the following year. It’s not a case of sour grapes, it’s just the same case of complete ego-maniacal crap every single week coming from you guys. Everyone is getting tired of it. And come on, steeping down to insulting the STADIUM? That’s just ridiculous and unnecessary. The stadium is old, and needs work, sure. That’s 1. why it’s getting work done following this season and 2. why many schools choose to use it as a neutral zone stadium over some of Vancouver’s big sites.

    Stadiums cost money. Camas didn’t have it for awhile, because they’ve had to invest it in a number of new elementary schools as well as the new high school. We’ve had the same stadium for 50+ years, and it’s become a part of the city which is why it’s stayed the way it has. Camas has finally grown big enough population wise as well as the sports programs to warrant a new stadium. Making fun of Doc Harris, who laid the foundation for sports at CHS back in the day is both classless and immature.

  26. DCGardner on October 18th, 2009 10:23 pm

    I find your claims of egomania to be ironic at best, before Union ever came around Camas was in the same dominant position as Union is today. Admittedly it was a lot more even back then (I have no idea what has happened to 3A GSHL), but Camas was always the favorite, if not one of them, for the league championship.

    And about the stadium, it’s not that Doc Harris is a third world soccer pitch, its just not suitable enough a location for the Union v. Camas game for just one reason, Capacity.

    Anyone that reads the Columbian every other saturday knows that ever since league play, Union and Camas games have become snoozers. Take a look at the Day After reports, other teams have paragraphs of analysis of their games, but for Camas and Union all that is said (and quite frankly all that needs to be) is “Camas and Union won again, and by a wide margin, again.” There will be no bigger game played down here until the playoffs. We are talking a audience in the thousands, and can you honestly say that Doc Harris is a superior venue to McKenzie? Not only is the main side not that big and a good chunk of it taken up by the band, but the visitor side is crud, and HEAVEN FORBID it rains. And oh sure they could setup bleachers on the North and South side, but like I said, we are talking in the thousands. Heck McKenzie even has more parking spaces! Camas is going to be one gigantic quagmire come the 30th, and the only good thing about that is I have a friend that lives a couple blocks away from there (A Camas alumni, but I don’t hold that against him ;-) )and we are just going to spend the day hanging out till game time. And we do plan on getting there VERY early so I can sit on the home side and don’t have to stand around the track, I would suggest the same to everyone who wants to have an enjoyable experience.

  27. Sports Fan on October 18th, 2009 10:47 pm

    Union fans will not be allowed on the Camas side.

  28. greater saint on October 18th, 2009 11:11 pm

    i doubt there gonna restrict union fans form sitting on the home side…. away teams always share the home side with camas

  29. greater saint on October 18th, 2009 11:14 pm

    camas dint have money even before the new elementary schools cuase they just had to have four baseball fields ugh they only need three at the most becuase baseball and softball are in different seasons and there is a varsity teams a JV team and a freshmen team no need for four but they did it anyways such a waste but its all over now so what ever just finally glad to see their finally redoing doc harris

  30. Knute on October 18th, 2009 11:15 pm

    According to what one poster presented earlier today, it would appear as though Camas’s school population is way above that of a 4A school. So, why would Camas choose to participate at the 3A level, rather than competing at the more fairer level that their school population would indicate (4A). Union’s deal was to compete @ 3A for 3 years, I suggested they opt up this year after the Bellevue game last year – which, for the record was the State Championship game, which also for the record they return about 95% of that team. But, at least they intend to make the leap next year, as per the agreement set forth by the WIAA when Union came into existance.

    It would seem as though Camas enjoys their ‘dominance’ as long as it’s not exactly a fair fight. Seems like we are sending the wrong message there. Also, consider the (false) claims that some would have you believe that Union is out there openly recruiting players to transfer there so they would be better. Contrast that with the comments that some made earlier here today that Camas’s QB lives in the freaking shadow of Fishback Stadium in Washougal. You only saw people (unbelievably) defending this. Something is smells bad in Camas, and it aint the doggone paper mill.

    One last point just to clarify, the brackets for state were re-posted today and Bellevue is now in the same bracket as the District 4 #1 seed. That in essence is the winner of the Union/Camas game. Instead of Bellevue coming down here to play in the crossover game, it would appear as of right now to be Liberty instead. Still no bargain for whichever teams ends up playing in that game. The bigger point is that the road to the championship game means eventually playing Bellevue in the Tacoma Dome in the semifinal game, rather than the state championship game.

    It is my opinion that Union, or errr the District 4 #1 seed – time to stop pretending UNION has the ability to play with Bellevue this year. I mean, have you SEEN that defense?! Can you count the number of threats on offense?! Also, the experience factor is overwhelmingly in Union’s favor. This could be the year that it happens, this particular class of Seniors have been working toward this goal since they were first formally introduced to each other as Sophomores.

    Union isn’t thinking small, and hoping for the best. Clearly, The U has their sights set on the big prize. I think all of SW Washington should be proud to cheer them on as they go on their run. Fist step is getting by Camas, which makes October 30th all the more exciting.

    P.S. Knute is BACK!

  31. DCGardner on October 18th, 2009 11:25 pm

    You surely made up for your absense with your essay of epic proportion Knute. You make my post trivial by comparison.

    But back to Union fans sitting on the Camas side… I will be there and you can try to move me if you like… But it’s just not gonna happen. I will be paying for entry into the gate, I will sit wherever I darn well please.

  32. gshlfan1111 on October 19th, 2009 10:08 am

    yes union we know you are very talented and you win a lot of games but you are acting like your some great famous program and acting like you have accomplished so much and that is just ridiciculous you have faced no adversity and been given everyrthing you have ever wanted from money to coaches to players., you were a school that was built to be successfull, you acuired all the best athletes in the district by having the school choose their own boundrary lines and offering classes no other school in the district has to make it easier to transfer for athlets and gave a good deal to piland to get some of the most experienced and best coaches in the league…
    schools like kelso, camas, evergreen, and river became succesfull programs by generations of kids growing up together and handing down tradition and work ethic on the field and in the community to the future players of the program..

    With enough leverage and money any school anywhere can pop up and take the best athletes in the comunity and win a lot of games but you have earned the respect of nobody.

  33. hard hitter on October 19th, 2009 11:00 am

    I’ve been to both stadiums several times this year, have coached at both locations many many times…McKenzie holds a better crowd, has better facilities but it also has the worst locker rooms in the league..period..
    Camas has an atmosphere that is second to none in the county…hour and a half before game time the stands are full…Mckenzie at game time the kids aren’t even in the stands..half full…Camas has by far the best refreshments, BBQ’s, parents involved and everyone having fun…I’ve stood in both lines at both stadiums it isn’t even close…Camas has taken what they have available to them and capitalized on it…the marching band…you name it…Camas has simply the most involved parents, booster club and it is the closest we will ever get to the Friday Night Lights feeling in Clark County..If I have two equal games as a choice to attend I will attend Camas because of the atmosphere…
    Next…DC, you better enjoy this year…this is the last year Union will have the “recruited class” that started your school…Union has a great great team and will represent Clark County well at state…but you better look a little harder at your roster….Your JV is being crushed by the other schools…and the shelves are a little thin…Many of” your” kids are now back in Evergreen, Mt View, and Heritage…
    and as a coach I have a feeling there will be many memories of the last couple years when the 2010 season rolls around…and if you look at Camas’s roster almost all of their skill positions will be back next year…All of Evergreen returns
    River, and Prairie return nearly everyone…Bay is very young and Skyview, and Mt View are all back….good luck…I think the teeter totter is about to even out a little…

  34. greater saint on October 19th, 2009 12:16 pm

    well said hard hitter… i said the same thing in an earlier forum but i didnt have facts like the ones you presented… it was actually all my opinion with no facts but its good to see that my opinion is in favor of the facts. UNION IS A ONE HIT WONDER!!!!

  35. camas alumni on October 19th, 2009 12:21 pm

    knute: as far as i know camas was supposed to go 4A in the 07-08 season but didnt because it would of left the 3A very weak and kelso had already left to go 4A and Prairie wasn’t 3A yet so that left river fort and union…. it would of been a disaster with only three teams representing 3A gshl

  36. DCGardner on October 19th, 2009 12:45 pm

    Lets break this down for a minute.

    1. Worst Locker Rooms: I doubt the kids care where they have their half-time meeting.

    2. Camas has a better atmosphere: First off, that is subjective. If it is raining or cold for example, not the best atmosphere at all. Secondly, the only people who might think that are the people sitting on the homeside which is filled up unless you leave 2 hours early. McKenzie even has food on the back of the vistor stands so people don’t have to tread all the way through the elements to get to food.

    3. hour and a half before game time the stands are full…Mckenzie at game time the kids aren’t even in the stands..half full: This is for a couple of reasons starting off with the simple fact that Doc Harris has little seating compared to McKenzie. The same and (far more likely) BIGGER crowds can sit comfortably in McKenzie’s home stands. Take the Union v. Camas game for example last year. All of Camas with probably a few exceptions (which were probably welcomed right on over to the homeside) sat nice and snug on the COVERED vistor side.

    4. Camas has by far the best refreshments, BBQ’s, parents involved and everyone having fun: To even assume that a good McKenzie burger in all of it’s onion-enriched goodness is inferior is just outright blasphemy. All the drinks you can think of, coffee, soda, flavored icecones, etc. And to see parents sitting at the tables, climbing up down and across all sides of the stadium, it is just insulting to think that Camas Parents are more involved. And think about it, everyone is having more fun at McKenzie for one simple reason, both sides are…

    A. Covered
    B. Have Access to Food
    C. Have room enough for Everyone.

    5. If I have two equal games as a choice to attend I will attend Camas because of the atmosphere…: Have fun sitting in the cold if you don’t get there early enough.

    6. DC, you better enjoy this year…this is the last year Union will have the “recruited class” that started your school: The fact that you refer to them as the “recruited class” is very flattering, and I will take that as a compliment.

    7. but you better look a little harder at your roster….Your JV is being crushed by the other schools…: Haven’t seen the scores for JV so I cannot comment on that. But if you look at the varsity team… The team that is 143-0 In PG and PF in 3A GSHL, you will realize that they are not all seniors. And who knows? If any more players decide that they want to be apart of a winning program instead of the program they are currently at, Union could get even more talent on it’s team.

    8. if you look at Camas’s roster almost all of their skill positions will be back next year…All of Evergreen returns
    River, and Prairie return nearly everyone…Bay is very young and Skyview, and Mt View are all back….good luck…I think the teeter totter is about to even out a little…: I never knew that individual talent won football games, but instead it was the effort of a well coached and well trained football team. The teeter totter isn’t going anywhere fast.

  37. Just Sayin' on October 19th, 2009 12:59 pm

    I agree with Hard Hitter, Doc Harris is a special place on Friday nights in the fall, and I’m a Union supporter! But, c’mon man… the ‘recruited class’ statement is just false, and it seems a bit disingenuious when you take into account that someone from Camas is throwing that claim around. I mean, it’s no secret that Camas has at least 2 out of district players on their team right now! Be careful where you throw those rocks, hard hitter. For the record; I clearly remember seeing a sign at the entrance to Doc Harris that tells the visiting team supporters where to sit and it aint on the home side. I get it, it’s because of capacity and it’s not a problem but don’t act like your accomodating to your guests because you certainly are not!
    Back to hard hitter; I don’t know how the JV or Freshman squad is doing. But here’s what I do know. The young pups for Union are getting a ton of playing time at the varsity level this year. So, maybe you haven’t seen the real future of UHS just yet.

  38. Football Guy on October 19th, 2009 1:14 pm

    Unions JV is undefeated. Freshman are ok but not great. Think they are 4-3 on the season. Funny how everyone on here knows everything but really knows nothing.

    I don’t care who wins the game. I just want the true facts to be said.

    Have a nice day

  39. DCGardner on October 19th, 2009 1:42 pm

    I’m a Union fan and I am definately sitting my behind on the home side of the stands. Thank goodness the colors are the same.

  40. greter saint on October 19th, 2009 1:55 pm

    you cant consider a team to be recruiting when they have tow players with a boundary exception unlike union who took players from the surrounding schools

  41. greter saint on October 19th, 2009 1:56 pm

    one of the players talked about is logan grindy….this was not a problem when his brother devin played the starting QB role during the 06-07 season

  42. 40 on October 19th, 2009 2:08 pm

    I think everyone on here is right on some things and wrong on other things, myself included.

    1. Union is very good. For Camas to beat them, Union will have to play an average game and Camas will have to play extremely well. Whats great is that both teams seem to be peaking right now as well, which should make for a well played, entertaining game.

    2. Camas did not recruit Grindy. He went to river homelink as a youngster and a camas jr high. This situation is alot different then a kid who was at one highschool as a FR and then went to another as a Soph.

    3. Camas’ enrollment last time around was not over the limit of being 3A. Whoever said they stayed down to make sure 3A had enough teams is wrong. Opting to play down is not an option for high schools. If you want to look at enrollment figures just go to the WIAA website and look at the classification breakdowns.

    4. Doc Harris for visitors does suck. Little bleachers and no concessions or bathrooms on there side. The new stadium will be much better for everyone. Who knows, to relieve congestion at Mckenzie, maybe Union can come use our new stadium next year as there home field ;)

    5. The loser of the Bellvue v Liberty game will be the #2 seed from that league and will play our #2 at our #2′s place

  43. norunningclock on October 19th, 2009 2:49 pm

    I don’t go to Union games regularly because they are boring as they romp teams
    I did go this weekend though and I am glad I did, it was good to see Penaranda on his first 5 touches go for 5 touch downs and almost broke the sixth, that impressive on any level.
    I am not a fan of the running clock I think it is demeaning to the losing team
    Let the 3rd and 4th string play, the losing team can keep their starters in and get better, that why they practice to PLAY. The running clock started half way thru the 2nd quarter you might as well tells the losing team its time to start the bus and go home at half time. Also I noticed that the head reff was trying to control the score that’s not his job.
    On another note I also notice that some of the Union players are out of Shape. NOT playing a full game just might come back and bite them in the lungs.
    Doc Harris or McKenzie who cares lets have a good game and wish both teams well in the playoffs
    Its about the kids and SW Washington!!!!!!!!! GO Union GO Camas!!

  44. Camas Fan on October 19th, 2009 3:41 pm

    One season, Camas had a freshman team that went undefeated. Not a very big deal right? Well, this team outscored their opponents by a total of over 400 points to exactly 14. They did not give up a single point to any other school’s freshman team, the 14 points given up were to a JV squad, but Camas still won that game.

    This all happened 2 years ago. That freshman class is now our junior class.

    Along with all the incredible talent in this years junior class, this years sophomores also bring a lot of power to the field as they went undefeated last year as freshmen. One example: if you scroll far enough up you can see that our sophomore RB Zach Marshall scored the last touchdown of Friday’s game.

    So for the person who said that both Union and Camas seem to be peaking, wait one more year on Camas,

    AND ON A SIDE NOTE
    Camas has never shared the home stands with any away team, ever, and it’s always overcrowded as it is. If YOU think your important enough to sit in the home stands and make Camas’ parents/students/band members stand on the track, possibly in the rain, then you have absolutely no class.

    Plus it’s not just Union and Camas fans going to the game. When I was leaving District Stadium on Friday I overheard a Prarie dad say that he wanted to see us play Union. If we’re attracting spectators from Battle Ground then theres no way everybody can cram up into those bleachers.

    If it rains, tough it out like you do walking between classes every day.

  45. DCGardner on October 19th, 2009 4:14 pm

    I have no class? People can sit anywhere they want at McKenzie no matter who your cheering for (although, you might want to not cheer too loud depending on who you’re cheering for). But your absoultely right, we have no class allowing them to not sit in the cold/rain.

    Ok, how about this then. Instead of paying anything to get in the game, i’ll pay nothing at all. Until that happens I’m going to sit on the home side. If I have to pay money to get into this, going to have to get there many hours early, and then have some rule “Oh, thanks for your money, now go sit in your crap bleachers” then you are sadly mistaken. Its is a great thing that Camas and Union have the same colors, makes it easy to intermingle. I have also encouraged everyone I know that is going to the game to do the same.

  46. hard hitter on October 19th, 2009 4:29 pm

    Sorry guys I’m not from Camas..Not even close…but I do think my credentials outweigh some of the dads on both sides of this fence…..Camas’s kids fill the stadium a full hour before game time…they have easily twice as many kids attend their home games…they are so loud it is hard to hear and I’m on the other side lines…there is NO comparison to atmosphere in CC…sorry Union there isn’t
    Secondly Camas fans: If you pay for your ticket you can sit where you want….I totally support as a coach and as a fan that there is not a home and away bleacher…just because it is covered…back your team where you want…Home and away at basketball?? Baseball? Track?? you sit where you want…fans is short for fanatical…Use your heads and be adults and show the kids in every stadium what it is all about…
    What Coach Eagle has done has brought a huge amount of excitement to a program that was already good..He works the 7th and 8th grades and a couple of years ago he was coaching those kids..It’s about numbers….and Coach Eagle gets it….
    “just sayin” I do know how your JV and Freshman are doing, I see them all the time..Football is a cycle sport and the cycle is coming around…Union will have a very very difficult time for a few years…Camas is loaded and if they can find a O line next year….it’s going to be a long year in 3A…If your in 4A next year good luck..
    Skyview unloaded two and a half busses on my team a year ago on JV…I had 26 players and we lost one game that year…Skyview will be scary next year…Evergreen will be very very good…great new coach…River is loaded…Prairie is starting a Sophmore D1 quarterback that will make everyone forget about Grayson…Bay if they can keep their grades up started 4 Seniors…
    Grindy?? get off that…He is a good kid…how many turnovers? 10-12?? against Union good luck with that…Union will play 15 players against Camas…Camas will play 30-35…they always do and Coach Eagle won’t deviate from his platoon…
    Why should he??
    “Just Sayin” Union will go to state and place again…good for them…but like I said
    my credentials are solid…This class was brought together for one purpose..this year…everyone knows it and so what.?
    This game next week: I’ve already heard there will be people trying to get in at 3…
    There will be no seats….I don’t care who you root for…Camas will have to play a perfect game…perfect..150 yds on the ground 150 yds in the air..and keep Union under 20 points to have any chance…win the turnover battle and have special teams show up..but let me ask you all this question…Isn’t it great we are talking about a game two weeks before it is played?? Isn’t that what this is all about???
    Kids, parents, relatives…people who don’t live anywhere near Camas or Union
    all coming to the “game of the year”?? How does it get any better than that?

  47. Just Sayin' on October 19th, 2009 5:13 pm

    I agree w/you hard hitter about the atmoshphere at Doc Harris, but it’s not as though Camas has a monopoly on atmosphere. When that Union band gets cranked up and the Titans are rollin’ McKenzie is a pretty fun place to be as well. The parental support @ Union is on a par with Camas and the kids actually watch the games… at least for as long as the score keeps things interesting, which lately hasn’t been very long. The Parents & Students are very proud of what their team have accomplished and I believe they show it with tremendous student involvement in just about every activity offered @ The U. From the 18 cheerleaders to the college level band to the army of a dance team, what you see is a ton of pride & involvement….why? because they love their school and this is how they show it. Not that Camas doesn’t have pride, but it’s certainly not the last word in this department in Clark County

  48. 40 on October 19th, 2009 6:20 pm

    Camas Fan. I was not saying the program is at its peak right now. I said both Union and Camas are playing there best ball this season right now. Both teams were not playing all that great early on and have been picking it up as the season has worn on.

  49. DCGardner on October 19th, 2009 6:21 pm

    Hard Hitter, Name one time in the entire history of Doc Harris that there has ever been a crazier time than the 2005 Mt. View v. Evergreen game or the Union v. Ferndale game. Just one time where Doc Harris has ever been louder than those 2 games.

    Other than that I think the fact that we are talking about this upcoming Camas v. Union game so much is the relative lack of any real good games where these 2 teams are involved, they have all been snoozers. This is the first time since league play that these 2 teams will face a team that will put up a fight and that’s a main reason why there is so much hype.

  50. LT on October 19th, 2009 7:06 pm

    ridiculous.. hoenstly. the stuff being said here is nothin but glamorized rumors and nonesense!!

    1. unions JV is not getting killed.. they are either 5-1 or undefeated and just picked up another win tonight. while the frosh team struggles this year the class of 11 an ’12 only lost 2 games as frosh, both to camas. so whats being said about them is false.

    2. union is not a 1 hit wonder, PILAND wont allow that to happen. your forgetting that a team of sophomores with ZERO varsity play went 6-3 against varstiy teams.

    3. yes doc harris has tradition, but to compare that to the student sections at union games is RIDICULOUS.. the union students and band is the best in the area.

    4. dont even get me started on parent involvment.. the union moms cant be touched..

    5.. these young men have been working on this dream for more than just a couple years.. a large number of these fine young men started playin ball together in 4th grade and the dedication, hard work, the chemistry and brotherhood and winning attitude has transpired from all these years spent together in triumph and in tears!! and the moms have been together and friends since then too :)

    6. this whole 3A and 4A crap needs to take a rest.. camas and union are both 3A because at the start of last season they didnt have the numbers to be 4A.. and the WIAA goes on a 2 year cycle, so next year both schools will prolly move up to 4A.. plus i dont see the bigg deal about it, both teams have proven to beat the 4A “powers” as 3A schools.. find somethin else to lash out at the teams for other than “hiding” out in 3A

    advice..

    before you come on here, throwing rumors around like you know oooo so much… take the time to get facts straight. please and thank you

  51. DCGardner on October 19th, 2009 7:23 pm

    Oh Snap!

    The only thing you didn’t mention is your preference between McKenzie and Doc Harris…

    But I would wager that I probably know the answer.

  52. camas alumni on October 19th, 2009 8:05 pm

    we will see at the end of the season and the beginning of next season who is right and who is wrong…. when it comes to playing football actually on the field i preferred doc Harris over McKenzie the turf is way better at Doc Harris… who really wants a turf burn after every tackle at McKenzie i know i didnt… every time we played there Holman always told us to wear long sleeves and back in Middle school we couldnt even wear cleats at McKenzie… But in terms of fan base i would choose McKenzie but its more about the players being comfortable and playing to the best of their ability.. i will say KIggins is way worse then both though i dont know if they fixed it but my senior seson they had holes on the field, filed with cement wow how safe is that lol

  53. union recruits? on October 19th, 2009 9:51 pm

    can anyone give me ONE PLAYER from union that does not belong at the school?

    JUST ONE!!!??? can ANYONE give me any evidence that A SINGLE PLAYER from union was recruited ???

    i would love to hear your story…

  54. union recruits 2 on October 20th, 2009 7:01 am

    (JV QB) uses his grandfathers address – he does NOT live in Union boundries. That’s one for you! Do you REALLY want me to NAME MORE! Unlike you, I will spare the “names” of these children. The kids talk, alot!!!

  55. BIg Boy on October 20th, 2009 8:48 am

    So much talk on here….maybe too much talk! Some people accuse Union of recruiting and some are out there defending the allegations. Lets talk facts:

    1. If there were ever any violations in asking kids to transfer to Union by the coaching staff over there who the heck on this site would know? Is anyone on this site that’s posting comments part of the varsity Union coaching staff?? I don’t care if your a parent of a player for Union or your close to the program the bottom line is unless your on the staff you really have no clue!!! The only exception would be if you’re sitting in those coaches meetings with Cale Piland and his staff which i guarantee is NOT the case! So quit acting like YOU KNOW!

    2. If your a Union hater and your just angry because they are kicking everyone’s rear quit sending accusatory comments about recruiting unless you can present facts and what coach called what kid and if that player does not live in Union boundary what is his name and physical address that he resides in? Also reveal your source…NO FAIRYTALE STORIES!

    3. Union is a fantastic football team. Aside from the constant accusations they are clearly the best prepared, most talented due to the fact that they work harder than any team in SW Washington to be as good as they are. The game is played by the players and not the coaches…those players have worked extremely hard to accomplish what they have accomplished.Give credit where credit is due.

    4. The reason Union is so successful is NOT because they have ALL the talent. They are exceptional because aside from their top tier players they get their average players to play WAY above their heads due to excellent coaching, team pride and a constant dedication to being their best every day in practice. Take the great players on each team in the GSHL and then look at the other guys on that team’s roster….how good are those guys? That’s what makes a team a state contender…it’s the rest of the team…People on this site act like Union has 8 or 10 D1 recruits and that they cheated to get them. Look at their D-Line last year and this year….many of those guys are just under 200lbs…but they’re damn good and they know how to DO THEIR JOB within the defensive scheme. I could go on here but if you don’t understand what I just said then you don’t understand high school football.

    5. I like Camas this year as a very good football team in the 3A. Love their coaching staff and their community. And yes no matter what I say or predict the game still has to be played. BUT…Union wins this game by 2 TD’s. And I’m being generous. Union has too many weapons and their defense is very very good as their vacancies from seniors who left have been answered by their replacements. Their replacement players for those lost seniors are solid and can get the job done. This team changed after the Foothills loss in Seattle. Best thing that happened to them this year. Camas would have been beaten badly by that Foothills team when you look at the match ups. Sorry but Union will flex their muscle at Doc Harris and many Camas fans will see the Titan machine at full throttle. Union is ready to make a deep run in post season play as their 2nd team players have played a lot in these regular season blow outs and have improved. Depth, determination and senior leadership will put them right where they need to be. BUT if I’m wrong, hey I’m wrong and will admit I underestimated the Camas 2009 team. But anyway good luck to all the GSHL teams for the last remaining 2 weeks of regular season play. God Bless high school football! The Best time of year!

  56. Your mom on October 20th, 2009 10:32 am

    Thank you, ‘Union Recruits?’…. No one will be able to come up with any names because there aren’t any. A big group of those Union Srs, including most of the ‘marquee players’ have been winning championships and giving other teams fits together since they strapped on pads.
    Union boundaries weren’t chosen by the school. They were chosen by an independent group of parents and district staff representing all areas and schools involved in boundary changes. I went to some of those meetings, and I can assure you that there was never any discussion of choosing boundaries to give any school an advantage in sports.
    Yes, there have been players that have moved to be in the Union area. And there were also students who moved to stay at Evergreen for the marching band. Parents will do what is best for their family. It doesn’t have anything to do with recruiting.
    Union is definitely not a ‘one-hit wonder’ destined to fail after this season. JV is 7-0, and none of the games have been particularly close. A number of the sophomores and Jrs. playing on the JV team would be starting at any other school in the county. These guys have been working hard, patiently biding their time. Fortunately, they have been getting lots of Varsity experience this season, with the games being as one-sided as they’ve been, and when next season rolls around, they are going to be hungry.
    I’m looking forward to watching the game at Doc Harris. Certainly Union doesn’t have the ‘Friday Night Lights’ feeling as much as Camas. How could it, after only two years, and in an area with 4 large high schools, rather than a one-school town? I will wait until I see it to pass judgment on the quality of Camas’ band, cheerleaders and parent boosters, but I can tell you that in each of those areas, the U has something pretty special.

  57. Seahawk Fan on October 20th, 2009 10:47 am

    Go Union!!!

  58. fannnngshl on October 20th, 2009 10:57 am

    i agree with norunningclock
    all this talk about stadiums and alot of nothing
    union has some very good football players and so does camas who cares about anything else. the game is two weeks away dont they play this friday?
    i am going to the union game i want to see some touch downs but i hope they do not use the running clock,(it wont happen) quit whining! and enjoy the season
    Like i said some good football players go enjoy their performance

  59. DCGardner on October 20th, 2009 11:28 am

    Ah yes, Camas and Unionwill play this friday. But there is a problem

    Union holds Praire to 0 and hits the high 40′s low 50′s (again) while Camas dominates Fort with a very good chance of shutting them out (again).

    I’m so sorry! I just spoiled this Fridays Union and Camas games. Sorry for those of you who haven’t seen it yet… But lets just face it, that’s how it’s going to go down.

  60. Fan of the U on October 20th, 2009 11:36 am

    DC – fortunately you are probably right, and unfortunately you are probably right.
    I hope neither school looks past this week and gets upset. They both need to be undefeated in league on the 30th.

  61. greter saint on October 20th, 2009 12:33 pm

    undefeated teams battling for the title is the best you can get, and i cant wait!!!

    Excuse me “Your mom on October 20th, 2009 10:32 am” but your following statement below regarding the Union JV team is FALSE!

    “A number of the sophomores and Jrs. playing on the JV team would be starting at any other school in the county.”

    THAT’S NOT ONLY ARROGANT AND STUPID IT’S FUNNY! HOW THE HECK DO YOU KNOW? GIVE ME NAMES AND POSITIONS AND I WILL TELL YOU WHO THE STARTERS ARE ON THE OTHER TEAMS IN THE COUNTY AND WE CAN DECIDE….

  63. DCGardner on October 20th, 2009 3:30 pm

    Lets be real for a sec Seahawk Fan, in the 3A GSHL, I’m pretty sure Your mom has a point.

  64. U Fan on October 20th, 2009 3:48 pm

    I’ve been at EVERY JV game this year and attended EVERY Freshman game last year. Last year the Freshman lost 1 game this year the JV is undefeated and every kid on that team gets play time. Almost ALL have had varsity time, too. Get your facts right!

    If I want to sit on the “home” side at Doc Harris on 10/30 I will do so.

  65. U Fan on October 20th, 2009 3:57 pm

    One more thing, Dear Seahawk Fan, if you want to know about these fantastic JV players then go watch a game! You will see just how good they are. “Your Mom” knows what she’s talking about…now go do your homework.

  66. Union Dad on October 20th, 2009 5:26 pm

    There has been a handful of Sophomores on Union’s JV team that have not been getting more than 4 or 5 plays a game and have never played in a Varsity game. This is mostly due to the fact that the JV team has a large number of lineman and they are sitting on the sideline waiting their turn which they will get next year.

  67. uniontitans on October 20th, 2009 8:45 pm

    Well i don’t know how all the union student crowd will fit in those bleachers and where people will park but i should be fun to find out

  68. DCGardner on October 20th, 2009 9:36 pm

    Seriously, the Wal-Mart Parking Lot has more space.

  69. UnionOLINE on October 20th, 2009 10:15 pm

    Just in case anybody was questioning the depth of the Union football team think about this.

    if you look in the columbian sports section and look at the leading Rushers and Receivers in the league, there are no union players on either list but we still manage to run over opponants scoring over 45 points each game………Why is that you might ask???? The titans rotate 4 running backs Two of which will be here next year, (Browning, Brody-Heim) both are dominant and with a strong O-Line coming Up from the JV next year the titans running backs will have a hay-day on opposing defenses.

    Some might say that Union is hiding in the 3A league, but if you look at the schedule the past two years, we have played the best teams in the 4A level and embarrased them also. So bring on the negative comments and the “recruiting” allegations, we will continue to play fair and roll over opponants. PERIOD

  70. Football Fan on October 20th, 2009 10:17 pm

    A number of the sophomores and Jrs. playing on the JV team would be starting at any other school in the county.

    I’m still waiting for a name and position of a JV Union Sophomore player that would start on ANY VARSITY TEAM IN THE COUNTY!!

    COME ON “U FAN, Your mom AND DCGardner” PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS….Basically you can’t!

    AGAIN I STICK BY MY ORIGINAL STATEMENTS….YOUR STATEMENT WAS ARROGANT AND FALSE AND IS PARTLY THE REASON THAT PEOPLE DON’T LIKE UNION…..”THEIR ARROGANCE TO BELIEVE SUCH GARBAGE!”

  74. The Truth on October 21st, 2009 8:22 am

    Okay Union parents and players…..along with Sports Fan’s question I have my own in regards to residence.

    How about Ryan Maddox? Two time All League LB from the last two years lived in apartments within walking distance of Mountain View High School. I have evidence of this….what do you say about that? Can anyone explain this?

  75. Just Sayin' on October 21st, 2009 8:23 am

    pfft…that’s easy #43. He’s nearly a carbon copy of #42. Go away w/your pettiness Seahawk fan

  76. Eowyn on October 21st, 2009 8:32 am

    So much animosity! “They’re cheating!” “Their stadium stinks!” WAAAAAA!
    Quit crying, enjoy the games, and be glad we have two great teams to watch on the 30th. As for next year, who the heck knows? I really do wish I had the crystal ball some of you have, that way I could rule the world instead of wasting my time on football blogs.

    Go TITANS!

  77. Seahawk Fan on October 21st, 2009 8:53 am

    Mr, “Just Sayin” …..I have seen #43 for Union and he is a good player. He has received some varsity time late in games when Union has been dominate in blow outs. He is an up and comer. BUT you are crazy to say he is a carbon copy of Penaranda # 42. Ask anyone who plays varsity for Union if they’re equal….not even close. Penaranda is the best athlete in the area. The kid scored 5 TD’s last game on I believe 6 or 7 touches. Both running the ball and catching passes. Gimmie a break!

    Now ….you say # 43 would START on any team in the county. Let’s break it down by example:

    1. Skyview – NOPE – Spears is better – proven veteran RB
    2. Camas – NOPE – Fisher is better – Proven veteran athlete at both RB/QB
    3. Kelso – NOPE – Sari is MUCH better – proven veteran RB & very physical
    4. Battleground – NOPE, NOPE & NOPE – #43 could not hold Johnny Simon’s jockstrap!! Aside from Penaranda, Simon is the best back in the County!! And you could argue Simon is better but I go with # 42 here.

    So I will stop here….again you said ANY team in the COUNTY…YOU said a STARTING position which would leave the above on the bench! Do you realize how dumb your or the original statement was?

    Teams HE might start for at the varsity level:

    1. Fort Vancouver
    2. Hudson’s Bay
    3. Prairie
    4. Hockinson
    5. Washougal
    6. Ridgefield

  78. DCGardner on October 21st, 2009 9:19 am

    I’m betting 1 dollar that everyone who has said “don’t complain about it” will complain about at one point during the game.

    you dont need a crystal ball to see how next season goes if you pay attention to teams and their upcoming players… my crystal ball says camas vs union again next year for the 4A league title…. any comments???

  81. camas alumni on October 21st, 2009 9:48 am

    also “my crystal ball” says either union dominates camas or camas wins a close high scoring game

  82. camas alumni on October 21st, 2009 9:52 am

    whats everyone’s predictions?

  83. 40 on October 21st, 2009 11:21 am

    Being a Camas fan. My heart says 27-24 Camas. My head says 31-17 Union.

  84. DCGardner on October 21st, 2009 11:34 am

    No MJ I am not Mr. Gardner the coach from Heritage. Why do you want to know who I am? Trying to get a lock on me eh?! Let me warn you I am a neurotic paranoid crazy person! And believe me boy you will never take me alive!

    As for the talk about Brody, just look at his record, HE DELIVERS.

    2 10+ Touchdown runs vs Heritage, A huge 42 yard TD against Fort, consistantly healthy, always has atleast an AYPC of 10 or more. The kid rocks man. And he doesn’t possess the one fundamental flaw that all the other starters for Camas, Skyview, Kelso, and BG do… He’s not a senior, which means he’s coming back.

    And #42 man, against H-Bay, he touched it 5 times, scored 5 times. Simon can’t touch that.

    As for the Camas v. Union game if nothing goes awry for any of the teams (injuries, pray that it doesn’t), then your looking at almost a lock of a Union win by atleast 2 touchdowns. The Camas squad this year just doesn’t compare to last year imo and with Union bringing almost EVERYONE back, its hard to not imagine another win for the U. However, Camas will definately score.

    Union 35 Camas 14

  85. DCGardner on October 21st, 2009 11:35 am

    I would also like to mention that in this game the special teams can make or brake it. It could be argued that their preformance will have maybe even an equal determinant on the outcome of the game.

  86. Just Sayin' on October 21st, 2009 12:18 pm

    actually seahawk fan, I never made that statement…also, #43 has played a bunch of quality minutes when the game was in doubt. He is definately part of the mix on offense, not just mop up duty. But, I really don’t feel like splitting hairs w/you. Just setting the record straight.

  87. UnionTitans on October 21st, 2009 12:50 pm

    I dont see camas defence doing to well
    Union 42- Camas 21

  88. Knute on October 21st, 2009 12:53 pm

    I think it’s kind of silly to throw out predictions on this game. I actually think it’s a little closer than some would have you believe. Certainly, you gotta give Union the edge but I don’t think it’s an overwhelming one. The emotional nature of the game will really have an effect, plus Camas is home. A bounce here, a spot there… it’s not too big of a stretch to think Camas pulls this off. I am quite certain that Union will be prepared & vice-versa. But the build up and the anticipation will have emotions soaring & this is when mental errors occur or something physically spectacular happens. Upsets happen, it’s why we play the games.

  89. 40 on October 21st, 2009 1:02 pm

    DC. Half of Camas’ starters are Jr’s. Camas will be good again next year and so will Union.

    QB Grindy Jr
    WR Faulkner Jr
    WR Salamanca Jr
    WR Anderson Jr
    DB Owen Jr
    DB White Jr

    aww come on knute, predictions are fun.

  92. 40 on October 21st, 2009 1:10 pm

    gotcha DC. Parker for Skyview is a soph though.

  93. 40 on October 21st, 2009 1:10 pm

    parker henry that is

  94. greter saint on October 21st, 2009 1:12 pm

    to be honest fisher is kinda small for a HB camas will have a better HB next year.. it doesnt really matter though.. i talked to coach eagle and he told me there focusing on the pass for a couple years then going back to the running game so im thinking camas will balance off the pass and the run for the next 2 or 3 years then they will start to run the ball and get back to the camas roots

    predictions by the fans and talking smack is whats makes the rivalry fun and exciting and its gonna happen its a football past time

  96. Knute on October 21st, 2009 1:18 pm

    Your right, 40. Predictions ARE fun – screw it! Union 28 Camas 27

  97. UnionTitans on October 21st, 2009 1:20 pm

    nahh not that close come on union defence will step it up

  98. DCGardner on October 21st, 2009 1:31 pm

    Ahhh I see what your doing Knute. You know that in reality Union will have a crushing victory, yet your predicting a much closer game to make it seem like Camas has a chance. I like it.

    I dont know about that greater saint. I assume you are talking about Marshall, who could turn out to be pretty good, but I don’t see him as a step up from fisher. Maybe when he is a senior, he will be a step up, but not next year.

    I also see camas staying pass heavy for at least the next 4-5 years. I know this might not mean much, but there is an 8th grade QB for Camas who is about 6-2 with a rocket arm. I saw him play a few times this year and with some good teaching he looks like he could be a very good HS QB. I do hope Camas gets a little more balance in there attack though. I’d love to see some power running sets with some play action off of them, kinda like what Union does, even though I hate union.

    i really hope camas steps up on the run game.. they remind me of the steelers… always been a run team now there passing idk just my opinion… i wanna see more running!!!!

    Just Saying’ get some glasses #43 and #42 are not in the same league one is a man the other a boy. If Penaranda got the ball regularly he would be leading the state, and as a receiver he might be the best union has, the kid does it all.
    No one on the field can change gears the way he can, he goes from 1st to 5th in two steps. I tell you who has a bright future is Browning he will be the starting tail back next year
    Union will find another fullback
    The great thing about this team they are not selfish or it seems they are good team mates and love to play together. I say stop thinking about individuals and think team. GO UNION GO CAMAS

    Go Mark Morris!!!

    I think 42 &43 have very similar running styles… blazing speed, tough – doesn’t go down on first contact. 42 has an amazing ability to make people miss. 42 IS a great back, 43 WILL be one as well. 21 is just a physically gifted…ANIMAL! Love watching that kid play.

    I checked on Massey to see what their often times scary accurate & other times miserably wrong prediction is for the game. Union 27 Camas 20 if anyone is interested. That’s why I’m saying that you throw in the rivalry factor & all the emotion (home field is already considered by massey) & you have a close ball game. Do not make the mistake of taking Camas (or any team) lightly. They have talent, they have heart & they would like nothing better than to rise up & punk their fiercest rival. Play with emotion, don’t let the emotion play with you! Let’s also not forget that you have a different opponent to worry about this week. So, concentrate on what is in front of you & Stay focused!

    For what its worth, that 6’2″ 8th grade from Middle school is Drew White’s brother. That 8th grade team went undefeated and they have a ton of talent at the skill positions. Coach Eagles son and the youngest Beasley brother were offensive threats both carrying and catching the ball. They also have a lineman that was 240 lbs. who was faster then most kids 140.

    when will everyone be able to see the red jerseys?

  106. CAMFAN on October 21st, 2009 9:58 pm

    great for penaranda getting a lot of hype and all… the kid is an amazing athlete and will make any college very happy…

    but you really think he is better than FISHER!!!
    ???

    come on now

  107. DCGardner on October 21st, 2009 11:23 pm

    5 Touches, 5 Touchdowns, And all except for a 3 yard run was a 30+ yard breakout.

    No running back in all of the GSHL can touch that.

  108. DCGardner on October 21st, 2009 11:24 pm

    Oh and they weren’t all runs either

  109. Observer on October 22nd, 2009 8:50 am

    He needs to have a big game against a legitimate school before I am a believer

  110. DCGardner on October 22nd, 2009 11:22 am

    THEN ALL SHALL BELIEVE!
