What to watch for…

Feather River Golden Eagles (0-0)

2019 record/result: 1-9

The Golden Eagles have the benefit of seeing what the Knights do for one full game before lacing them up for the first time. But a downside is Shasta got its first-game rust off last week and Feather River might experience some of those miscues that come from not playing in 16 months. Feather River replaces most of its playmakers on offense, including its all-conference and dual-threat QB Jalen Dummett. Head coach Nick Goulet expects to play a combo of two quarterbacks George Tribble and Daeden Taylor who have Nate Jones and Sam Marshall at their disposal while Tayvonne Miller and Tanner Hall offer a one-two punch of thunder and lightning.

Defensively, Feather River returns its top two tacklers in linebacker Eric Schmitz,  the lone returning all-conference player, and defensive back Tristan Catan. Expect freshman Dominyke Edwards to be a difference maker alongside Schmitz, Joe Perez in the trenches and Serio Medina in the secondary.

Shasta College Knights (0-1)

Last week: 19-16 loss to Siskiyous

Last week’s loss on the game’s final play left the Knights in anguish. Shasta appeared to have it won, scoring the go-ahead touchdown from Toren Tuttle to Gentry Cox with 42 seconds left before the defense — which had been solid all day — gave up the devastating blow on a 37-yard Hail Mary. The ground attack didn’t come close to expectations last week, a lot of which is due to the growing pains of starting five freshmen on the offensive line. If the guys in the trenches can get moving and use their athletic ability, the three-headed monster running attack of Tyler Boston, Jayden Gordon and Vinny Smith can get rolling and set the tempo for the Knights.

Defensively, Shasta was stout against the run but is facing a spread offense that regularly sends out four and five-wide receiver sets, meaning tackling and coverage assignments is going to be key in keeping the Golden Eagles out of the end zone. Returners Tavian Wallace (Mansfield, TX) and Larry Polk (Irving, TX) had double-digit tackle performances while the secondary — minus three big plays, all on the final drive — of Jaiden Harris (Roswell, GA), CJ Catia (Clearwater, Fla.), Noah Benson (Marietta, GA) and Jared Amasio (Orange, CA) look to be a formidable unit that can be feared by opponents.
