Week #8: 10/21/16 – Coquille Coach David Thomason & Harrisburg Coach Scott Phelps




Prep Talk Eugene is back with our weekly show Talkin’ Football! It’s crunch time and the race for the league championship is getting intense for many of our local teams and leagues.

This week we have as our guest Coquille Coach David Thomason. The Red Devils (3A) are 7-0, ranked #5 in the OSAA RPI and the defending Mountain Valley Conference champions! They travel to Harrisburg friday for a big game with the Eagles that could very likely determine the conference championship. Last year, the Red Devils held serve at home and beat Harrisburg 24-20 to clinch the conference title. Marvin and Marcus interview coach Thomason and find out more about this squad and preview the game with Harrisburg.

Following our interview with Coach Thomason, Marvin called an audible and suggested we talk with Harrisburg Coach Scott Phelps. Coach Phelps happened to be available and we got a chance to speak with him too. Thank you to both coaches for your time and flexibility!

We also discuss, debate and analyze all the local teams from 1A to 6A. Sheldon (6A) has a big game for the Southwest Conference championship this friday at South Medford and the Thurston Colts (5A) look to rebound with another conference clash at Ashland.

We have some post game audio with Marist Coach Frank Geske and quarterback Reow Jackson following the 17-14 win over Thurston. Coach Geske tells us the Spartans are not talking about next season yet and hope to “muddy the waters” for the Midwestern League playoff picture.

We have Stump Marvin Trivia in which we ask Marvin to “Name the school (and year) to last defeat the Sheldon Irish in a Southwest Conference game?” Listen in for the answer.
