The Union Titans are getting really good at winning games by 45+. For the 4th game in a row, the Titans have led their oponent by 45 or more points in the game, which makes the game go to a running clock.

    14 IN 2009…..Have you heard the popular saying at Union? Most people think it means that Union will get 14 wins this season. Wrong answer. 14 is the number of zip codes that Union Football players come from that make up the program this year. I understand the goal is to try and out do Jesuit’s recruiting machine.

    Come on guys maybe next year kids shouldn’t commit to play for their own schools but Union can hold tryouts. This situation is not getting any better so maybe we just need to get the strategy out in the open for discussion.

    Recruiter Police… Just no… Just no…

    Union doesn’t recruit, they never have. What HAS happened though is they have developed a successful program that attracts players to it. Even Union in general is a quality school in of itself that any student would want to be apart of. This is characteristic of all good sports programs. Get over it.

    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.

    Recruiter police – awww the green eyed monsters are coming out again this year. If you have some proof of your accusation- then do something with it. Unfortunately you are just echoing the same garbage that pops up on this web-site. Lame

    DCGardner…sorry to say but it will be another “snooze fest”! The Columbian keeps running all these articles about how Camas is keeping up with Union; I just don’t see it. Guess we’ll find out that the hype really isn’t there on 10/30.

    gshlfan1111 – Wow, I sense some resentment in your statement. It is no secret that Union has money and that lots of kids actively try to go there, not just athletes. Union DOES NOT recruit and despite all the chatter on this site and others, it is rather difficult to get a boundary exception. Those decisions are NOT made by the school, but by officials at the district office. In addition, Union DID NOT choose their bondary. This was a complex issue, which involved input from administrators, school officials, community/parent meetings (of which there were several!) and the transportation department. Ultimately, the school board made the final determination on boundaries, just like they do with every other school opening. Offering classes other high schools don’t have? Yes, but so do Heritage, Evergreen, and Mountain View. Each high school does that, and that does not necessarily guarantee you a boundary exception anyway (again, this is decided by people who work for the district, not the schools).

    People are just jealous, and you are one of them. Whenever anyone is at the top of thier game, be it sports or academics or reputation or whatever, others try to bring them down. It seems for some that there is no way something or someone could achieve so much without cheating in some way. Honestly, get a real perspective or something. How does blaming or crying around about a problem change anything? If Union was cheating and there was evidence of it, I am pretty sure it would be wide public knowledge by now. There is no conspiracy here, just really…..good…..luck. Oh yeah, and maybe determination to prove all the naysayers wrong!

    By the way, I think that the Camas and Union game WILL NOT be a snoozer. The biggest mistake the Titans (and our fans) can make is to underestimate Camas. This is going to be a knock-down, drag-it-out fight, arguably the best game of the season. CAN’T WAIT!
