A shout out to those who helped make football opening night coverage possible

Thanks to a lot of help, SiskiyouYouth.com was able to cover in person every Siskiyou County football team that played a home opener on Friday night.

It would’ve been easier to just choose one game and call it good. But, if “Siskiyou” is in the name of your business, you should probably make the effort to cover all of the county…just saying.

Violet Carter had the most complicated assignment, and pulled it off perfectly. Step one was to go to Dunsmuir, and shoot as many photos as time allowed. Then, she had to get to Mt. Shasta in time to catch the end of the Bears’ junior varsity game. And, or course, next up was the Bears varsity game. Have I mentioned that Violet is a junior at Weed High School? Nice job kid.

Bryce Cummings drew the Etna game, and provided absolutely stunning photos of both the junior varsity and varsity games. Well done Bryce.

Because of Violet and Bryce’s hard work, we were able to get the coverage of all the home contests posted in less than 18 hours after the games.

I headed to Happy Camp for the Indians game against Butte Valley. Eight-man football is always fun, and it gave me the chance to see some of my favorite people in Happy Camp, as well as several favorites from Butte Valley.
