    All beacause Union, Skyview, and Cams have been the best teams for a while and had their way with teams there is always gonna be a cinderalla story somewhere. And heritage has the talent to be that cinderella story. Heritage had a very young team this past season with sophomore linebackers d linemen and o linemen and the receiver E’Lon. E’Lon is a good young talent who I’m sure works very hard. And I know Heritage and Battleground have b to tired of always being passed over and barely talked about because Union, Skyview, and Camas. So might want to watch the returning playrs for Heritage this coming seaosn they might put up a real fight even though nobody is expecting them too.

    so because union, skyview, and camas have worked so hard to be continually good over the past decade you think that means there will be a cinderella story? all 3 of those teams return a lot of players and will all be 4a, doubt another team outside of those 3 will make the playoffs in the next 5 years.

  3. Reality Check on January 11th, 2012 10:40 am

    With Camas moving into the 4A classification, it will be a 3 teams competing for the 4A GSHL title for years to come. With demographics, housing markets, school research etc… The big 3 will continue to flourish because of this thus, allowing for a more competitive 3 team race. Order of finish next year:

    1. Skyview
    2. Camas
    3. Union
    4. Battleground
    5. Heritage

    Whoa, 5 years is a long time. Those players are still in middle school. While I don’t see BG, heritage, or EG making the playoffs this coming year, It’s definetely not out of the question after that. Look at how good Evergreen was 5 years ago and before, and now they struggle to get enough players. Evergreen could easily get a new quality coach and turn things around, or Heritage could get better in coming years and even BG.

  5. really? on January 11th, 2012 4:43 pm

    actually 5 years that just no.. stated is kind of accurate. Considering how corrupt the system is for athletes to just move schools whenever they want to (not accusing schools for recruiting or anything, just pointing out the facts) and can easily lie and say they want to transfer for academic reasons or whatever. I wouldn’t be surprised if the next 3-5 years skyview, union, camas, and mtn. view will stay as the dominant gshl teams..the only possible “Cinderella” teams are EHS and HHS considering both teams were very young this year (ehs had at least 10 sophomores start on O and D. while hhs has e’lon and other sophomores). If kids actually played for the right school for all we know BGHS, EHS, or HHS could have won the 4a gshl.

    To the kids who think about transferring, don’t. You are better off playing with the people you known for years and grown up with then leaving and selling your team out.

    Wasn’t sure where to post this. Oregonlive had ran a story yesterday that Ellis Henderson is transfering to psu next year.

    Nice to see PENN STATE offer J. Warner of Camas. And to think he was like 4th in the Best WR poll on this site… funny. I’ll take a Penn St. offer any day. Now, yes, his dad going there helps, but you still have to be good.

  8. ChrisH on January 13th, 2012 12:20 pm

    Really? – All I’m saying is that coaches leave and change schools, and new quality coaches come from outside of the district. For example, before Kizer came to Skyview the team was terrible without a single postseason win or appearance I think. Even after his first year, results weren’t that great. I do believe that these teams are the favorites to be good 5 years from now, but I don’t think it’s fair to say that EHS, HHS, and BHS won’t be winning a playoff spot in the next 5 years.

  9. exactly on January 25th, 2012 7:52 pm

    HHS, and BG are schools that can sneak up on you. if teams walk in to confident they will hit u in the mouth and make it close. I’m sure those kids are tired of getting over looked. And if half the kids stayed at the schools they were supposed to b at then there would b no dominent team

    here we go again….

    With Camas joining the 4a League, It will be a wide open exciting year with some serious rivalry games. Camas has a very deep team returning for next season, so look out for the Papermakers, Doc Harris will be rocking!!!!!

  12. really? on January 30th, 2012 3:39 pm

    skypa- “here we go again….”

    I know you are a skyview fan and I respect that, but if you’re going to be all overconfident/cocky then please keep it to yourself. Skyview is losing A LOT of seniors this year. So I wouldn’t be that surprised if they get an upset by HHS,BGHS, and heck even EHS, but then again you guys will probably get transfers for all of the seniors you lost.


    I agree with you 100% especially with the dominant team transfer part. Skyview and Union have been the top dogs for the last couple of years and I believe that next year there will be an upset by ehs/hhs/bghs.


    I see what you are thinking. The Head coaches at EHS,HHS, and BGHS all have one thing in common which is they recently within the past 3 seasons gotten the head job. So then 5 years is an overstatement, but transferring is really what the good schools rely on now and that’s the ugly truth.

    @really, my comment “here we go again” was in response to the comment above about kids transfering schools. But to respond to your comment, yes, I am pretty confident about the Storm this season and no, I will not keep it to myself. This site is here for me to discuss and share my opinion about GSHL football and I will do just that. It’s high school football! Everybody loses good players to graduation every year. Skyview has a great coaching staff and will have the up coming underclassman ready to fill in those spots. Solid D coming back led by J Marshal. We will have a big, strong, physical O line, a GREAT group of receivers with Forrest Russell, Reiley Henderson, and Spenser Miles, and QB who is a very good passer and will flat out make plays! Wouldn’t be surprised to see Berni set Skyviews single season passing record this year with the group he has to throw to. Should be some great competition with Skyview, Union and Camas battling for the league championship. As far as HHS, BG, or EHS beating the Storm this year, I wouldn’t make any bets on that. But hey, any given day right?

  14. John on February 7th, 2012 10:32 pm

    Bryan, when is the up coming season posted? I see Camas plays Oregon City on August 31st. Seems alittle early for football. Are they playing in a Oregon special event or is it at the Oregon City HS field?

Got something to say?
