9/13 7:00p Arapahoe

9/20 6:00p Thornton @ Littleton Public School Stadium

10/3 6:00p Centaurus
10/11 6:00p @ Montrose
10/17 6:00p Aurora Central
10/25 4:00p @ Denver South
10/31 6:00p Gateway
11/8 7:00p @ Ponderosa EchoPark Stadium (Parker, CO)

Biggest storyline: Six potential next level football players from little old Littleton. A coaching staff that has dedicated a half a decade to getting the program on track after moving down from 5A to 4A. The fact they never gave up and won the 2018 rivalry game mesmerized the community and a statement was made that HHS can compete with the big boys of 5A.

Names to watch this season: #3 Terrance Ferguson WR,TE (Jr) 6-5/212, #6 Noah Freng MLB,OLB (Sr), #89 Erik Olsen TE (Jr) 6-5/230, #94 Lucas Williams DE/OLB (Sr) 6-0/220.

Biggest holes to fill: A long snapper along with some special teams players and a couple running backs that paid dividends last season.

Gonzo’s Early Take:  WIN! An Early post season exit in round one 2018 playoffs and a running clock in Q2 that ended 50-0 vs Pine Creek. Definitely should be a Pre-season Top 10 team and arguably 5 or 6! (See @303Gonzo poll August 8th). Knoblock enters his 6th season as the HC and has won the battle of little league in the LPS district if you gander at the roster. In 2014 the Eagles under Knoblocks inaugural season won the rivalry game 23-14 versus Arapahoe and lost the next 3 consecutive games. In 2018 the Eagles knocked off the Warriors under 1st year coach Rodney Sherman so Tyler is 2-3 against the crosstown team and looks to even up his record on September 13th. HHS has to do better than 3-2 in conference otherwise its wait until next year when 4A expands to 24 playoff teams. Another 8 game winning season is within reach but at some point the foes of both Pondo and Montrose have to be won. The culture over 5 years has been built so in year 6 it has to be moving further into the post season as an early exit just doesn’t make sense with all the homegrown talents.

Biggest storyline: Six home games! A solid QB and ponies in the backfield with a solid OL. Plus a former college coach ready to battle on a weekly basis. From North to South the trojans were well traveled in 2018 and now host 6 games in the 10 game schedule. The fact that #20 Q. Jones (Jr) RB, was injured and now back to 100% will be a major asset for FFC.

Names to watch this season: #18 I.Robinson (Sr) QB, #20 Q. Jones (Jr) RB, 69 Schneider Thomas T/DE (Jr.) 6-5 & 280, #62 Brendan Bills G/C (Sr) 5-11 & 265, #70 Sherman Deaton T/NG (Sr) 6-4 & 265, #96 Tasi Tuliloa DT/DE (Sr) 6-0 & 250, #63 Isaac Barker 6-0 & 250, and most likely of 2023 FOTY: Tai Faavae ATH/RB/MLB (Fr).

Biggest holes to fill: A few big fellas up front that graduated and a few skills. Otherwise a healthy returning roster.

Gonzo’s Early Take: Determination to WIN! The senior Trojans have had the same HC during their freshmen year. So they are well aware that they have been coached by a college position coach. Now after 4 years of hard work in the off season with weights, 7s and hog wars the Trojans are ready for a break out year in their final 5A season. FFC moves to the 4A class in the next 2 year cycle. FFC has arguably the BEST RB in 5A in Q Jone and a freshman, Tai Faavae that could spell “Q” during the aggressive non conference schedule. Definitely should be a Pre-season Top 10 team and arguably 5 or 6! (See @303Gonzo poll August 8th).
