What to watch for…

College of the Siskiyous Eagles (0-0)

2019 record/result: 0-10

The Eagles ranked near the bottom of the state in most offensive categories including scoring at 12.9 points per game. There is plenty of turnover on its roster but return return quarterback Hayden Chittock (Susanville/Lassen HS), who played in last year’s loss to Shasta by completing only 6-of-14 of his passes for 36 yards and an interception. Siskiyous has a new head coach in Tyler Knudsen who has plenty of familiarity with the team, serving as the Eagles’ defensive coordinator since 2013. Without many returners coming back who saw action, Siskiyous has a lot of unknowns and mostly out-of-state players fill its roster. Keep an eye on 6-foot-4, 205-pound receiver Ted Wickman (Yoncalla, OR) who hauled in 21 passes for 220 yards and a score in 2019.

Shasta College Knights (0-0)

2019 record/result: 7-4, lost 50-43 in Golden State Bowl to San Francisco City College

Shasta’s stable of running backs of Tyler Boston (Dixon, CA), Jayden Gordon (Redding-Foothill HS) and Vinny Smith (Redding-Shasta HS) are going to be the main storyline this spring. Boston came on strong during NorCal Conference play in 2019 and had a strong showing in the Golden State Bowl with 200+ yards and four touchdowns. Gordon is an FCS bounceback from Idaho State but possesses the size (6-1, 218) and speed that many FBS programs desire (teammates are already calling him mini-McCaffrey). Smith is a local product at Shasta High who is a powerful runner and is entering his third year in the Knights’ system. Even freshman Deonte Jones can shine if gets a chance to show he belongs higher up on the depth chart. Shasta’s question mark relies in the offensive line where no player has taken a collegiate snap yet. Defensively, the Knights have playmakers at every level — DL with RJ Bell (Snowqualmie, Wa.) and London McCall (Jones Boro, Ga.), LB with Aidan Allsop (Poulsbo, Wa.) and Tavian Wallace (Mansfield, TX) and DBs Jaiden Harris (Roswell, Ga.) and Larry Polk (Ranchview, TX) — which should bring the youngsters up to speed.
