Mount Si’s football season kicks off with Scarlet and Gray game

Mount Si’s football program kicked off the 2013 season last night with their annual Scarlet and Gray Game at the high school. The preseason scrimmage allowed the team to give fans an idea of the type of things they can expect to see on the gridiron this fall from the four Wildcat football teams, and also provide fans a first look this fall at some of the names and faces that will be key to the team’s success, such as senior quarterback Nick Mitchell.

“It’s kind of the first team scrimmage a week and a half after practice has started,” said Mount Si coach Charlie Kinnune. “We definitely need six more practices before our first game, so we’re looking forward to that.”

The varsity portion of the event was won by the Scarlet side 8-7, with Beau Shain and Parker Dumas scoring the touchdowns in the contest.

Prior to the scrimmage, the second annual Football-A-Palooza event was held in the high school’s parking lot, and while it looked as if there was less of a turnout this year than last, fans, parents and players all were a good mood as the season gets underway.

Fans were treated to a performance by the new Mount Si drumline, which will be providing musical entertainment this fall at Wildcat home games, and there were a number of kids’ activities that also were provided.

The SVSJ conducted interviews for the football preview last night at the Scarlet and Gray festivities. Look for our preview tomorrow here on the blog.
