GAME NOTES
This will be the 3rd meeting between the two schools. Bulldog alumn Eric Cavaliere is the current head coach for the Trojans who finished the 2013 seasonas the SJS Division I runner-ups for the second straight year. Oak Ridge is led by junior quarterback Ian Book. Book threw for more than 2,500 yards last year. He is ranked #60 in the state for the 2016 class by Rivals.com and holds early offers from Idaho and San Diego. He is joined in the backfield by running back Stephen Douglas. Last year, Douglas rushed for an average of 6.3 yards per carry. Defensively, Andrew Lackowski returns and brings with him an offer from San Diego where the Trojans took part in a summer camp. He was second-team, All-Delta River League as a junior and made the post-season All-Sierra Foothill League as a linebacker. He is the only member of the Trojans’ defense to make the preseason list.                                                                  Oak Ridge is one of two new teams that are                                                                  headed to the new Sierra Foothill League.                                                                  The Trojans beat new league mates                                                                  Rocklin (23-21) and Granite Bay (28-17)                                                                  last year.                                                                                                                                   Before beginning league action, Oak Ridge                                                                  will take on Whitney, Burbank and Reed of                                                                  Nevada. The Trojans have posted at least                                                                  one playoff win in each of the last three                                                                  years.   Vacaville will have a good core returning from an offense which averaged 36 points per game in 2013. Starting at quarterback, Chad Hekking is back for his senior year after passing for 1,614 yards and 17 touchdowns compared to just four interceptions. The Bulldogs bring back runners DaMonte Moore and Kane Cunningham, which combined to ruch for over 1,000 yards in 2013. The Bulldogs have been a picture of offensive production over the last decade and this year’s version should follow that trend. Vacaville has several key returners on defense, including Wyatt Faulkner, Mykal Walker and Dulon Stevens. The large group will try to continue the Bulldogs' incredible run of success. Vacaville went 8-4 last year, qualifying for the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs for the eighth straight season. The Bulldogs also went 5-0 to win the Monticello Empire League title, the team's fifth undefeated MEL season in a row. Vacaville has won 26 straight MEL games dating back to the 2008 campaign. A revamped but still daunting nonleague schedule should prepare the Bulldogs for MEL play. Enterprise and Berkeley replace Valley Christian of San Jose and Deer Valley of Antioch on the schedule. Enterprise played for a state title last year, and their core group was very young. Berkeley is very big. The Bulldogs will be playing physically big teams week 4 and 5. Vacaville lost two quality teams from the schedule, but feels like it has picked up two more.
