Los Molinos High School football preview

An already dominant high school football program is shaking things up this coming season.

The Bulldogs went a perfect 13-0 last year topping the northern section division 6 standings. But this year they’re shaking things up. They’ll be moving from an eight-man league to 11 starting this year. The running lanes are tighter and the level of competition is stronger, but first year Head Coach James Humphrey remains unphased.
“My saying since i’ve been here is anybody, anytime, anywhere. We play the big boys all the time, we try too.” Humphrey added, “We played Red Bluff, Shasta, Foothill in baseball last year. This week we have San Lorenzo and they have 1500 kids at their school to our 200…that’s kind of what we want.”
He’s not the only one looking forward to this next phase of Bulldog football. Senior runningback Hunter Landingham has a lot of varsity experience regardless of the league. His transition to 11-man football may not be as hard as some think.
Landingham says, “I’ve never really had to go against kids that were smaller than me. Everybody that we’ve went against is a big team with big kids and you just get a lot better playing better players.”
The Bulldogs first game is over two weeks away but if there’s one way to describe Los Molinos’ mindset for Septmeber 13th: Challenge accepted.
