Warriors impress
at scrimmage


By ERIC LUCERO

The Winters High School varsity football team has officially started their new season, and this year they stepped it up a notch by scrimmaging much larger schools in the Sacramento area.
On Saturday, Aug. 23, the Warriors traveled to Ponderosa High School to compete against Ponderosa, Rosemont and River Valley High Schools.
“We wanted to get out of our comfort zone,” said coach Daniel Ward. “We definitely accomplished that. The schools we faced were much larger in numbers and size but we battled against everyone of them and did it with that old Warrior attitude.
“Defensively we struggled against the bigger players but we didn’t back down and played very aggressively. Offensively we looked as good as anybody there.”
The Warriors will kick off their season on Friday, Sept. 5, against Colfax High School. Colfax is one of the best programs in the Sac-Joaquin Section so it will be a tough start for the Warriors but they are up for it.
“We will have the toughest first four games that we have ever had,” Ward said. “At least since I have been here. We know its tough and that’s the way we want it. The first four games will be the toughest of the season.”
