Week #12: 11/18/16 – Tigard Coach Craig Ruecker


Only five local teams are still playing high school football as the playoffs continue this week with quarterfinals for 6A and semi-finals for 1A to 5A.

This week on Talkin’ Football, we discuss the results of Sheldon’s 38-28 win Lincoln and their Wing-T offense. We also preview the Tigard at Sheldon game this friday and have an interview with Tigard Coach Craig Ruecker.

Coach Ruecker is a Junction City grad and shares one of his favorite memories of playing high school football for the Tigers. Coach Ruecker is in his 8th year at Tigard and has a record of 71-24 with the Tigers. Overall, he is 287-149 having coached at Reynolds, Redmond, Glencoe and Tigard.

We debate, discuss and analyze all the games, including Cottage Grove’s 25-21 over Astoria, Harrisburg’s 28-12 win over Rainier, Lowell’s 54-30 upset of #1 Powers and North Douglas’ 50-42 win over Sherman.

We have some post game audio with North Douglas Coach JJ Mast following the big win over Sherman.

Just for fun, I was reminded of this 13 second youtube video of a streaker at a Tigard high school football game in 2014. Turn up the volume for the crowd reaction and watch the whole thing, to funny:
