Just a reminder to everyone that we have reserved seats for Touchdown Club Members who have purchase the $250 membership. There are still plenty of seats undercover for non-members, west of the center stadium section. The top 5 rows of the center section are reserved. A TDC Volunteer will be available at the game with a list of members if you have questions. Go Cavs!
Graduation took a heavy toll on a Clackamas team that reached the Class 6A quarterfinals last season, but after what happened Friday night, it’s apparent that the Cavaliers aren’t going away.
Clackamas won 27-14 at Paloma Valley (Calif.), a perennial playoff contender in Southern California. Paloma Valley, which has an enrollment of 3,000, went 10-2 last year and was coming off a season-opening win.
Week 1 @ Paloma Valley

Winning every one of your nonleague games is nice, but it isn’t always the best preparation for league games.
In each of the last two years, Paloma High School’s football team opened the season 5-0 entering league play, winning by scores such as 61-6, 56-12 and 70-7. The numbers look good, but how much are your players developing against tough competition?
This explains why coach Bert Esposito was encouraged by much of what he saw Friday night, even though his team lost a 27-14 decision to a highly-ranked Clackamas team from Oregon.
