#10: Stopping Scappoose on 4th down on their first drive and taking our ensuing possession down the field and scoring on a connection from LaCoste to Clark.
#9: 90 Yards to Pizza -- taking the opening KO of the YC game 90 yards for our first special teams score of the year. Pollard takes it up the middle untouched with great blocks from Leary, Richardson, Ruiz, Owen, and Owens.
#8: Youth out in Force -- having 85 youth players from our community show up on the first day of football camp was a scene that I don't think anyone could believe. Football is back and alive in Seaside.
#7: 3rd and Whatever -- the first time we were backed up all season was when we faced a 1st and 24 against Warrenton in the opening quarter. A short run by Pollard, a quick pass from Hofmann to Pollard, and a perfect slant completion from Hofmann to Richardson was all we needed to convert. This told our boys we can handle whatever anyone throws at us.
#6: 1st of Many to Come: The crowd rose in unison as Pollard scampered 81 yards to pay dirt vs Warrenton for our first TD of the season...fortunately there were many more on the season for the Gulls. These plays are only possible by the big boys up front...great effort by McClendon, Schehl, Fassler, Hague, DiDenti, and Clark.
#5: We Hit Last Night...: The victory song has become a staple of our program. The opportunity to sing it after our first contest of the season vs. Warrenton was something special. As promised, those words will be available to all prior to the beginning of the season next year.
#4: Adversity?: We talked about it all week and i'm glad we did. We found ourselves down a score late in the Taft game with one opportunity to score. Our kids rallied and pushed the ball right down the field to secure a late 4th quarter victory in the second game of the season.
#3: Clatsop Clash is Back: What a great evening of high school football that saw 8 lead changes and plenty of offense. Unfortunately when overtime commenced we weren't on top, but it further solidified our belief that we belong on the same field with anyone in our league.
#2: The Refs Said What?: You don't always learn lessons from a beating we took from the likes of Banks, but there was certainly one that came apparent a couple of days later. I have never been so proud to be a part of an organization the day I received that email from the officials commending our young men on their sportsmanship and the way they carried themselves.
#1: Seaside Wins, Seaside Wins, Seaside Wins: It had been some time since a Homecoming victory for the Gulls. It was a glorious night for our kids, coaches, families, and fans with the sound defeat of the Cheesemakers on Homecoming Night. The victory was the icing on the cake to countless hours and financial contributions to make our facility a dream come true for many.
