By Ray Hamill — The wait is finally over for fans of Big 4 football, with the three-week league schedule kicking off next weekend.
And the big question on everyone’s mind is which team is going to come out on top?
The Eureka Loggers are the two-time defending champions, and have looked better and better as the season has gone on, with the exception of this weekend’s shutout loss against a good Chico team.
The Del Norte Warriors have arguably been the most impressive team on the North Coast this season, dominating most teams with their physicality along the line and an overwhelming running game.
The St. Bernard’s Crusaders, meanwhile, have a lightning fast offense and a defense that also has been dominating opponents this fall, but do they have the size and depth along the line to compete with the others?
A young Fortuna team has mostly struggled with a 2-5 record, but always plays better towards the business end of the season and every week is among the best coached teams on the North Coast.
The action gets under way with two games this weekend, as St. Bernard’s travels to Del Norte on Friday night and Eureka hosts Fortuna on Saturday night.
Let us know which team you think will come out on top and we’ll print the poll results later in the week.
