The now annual Linfield alumni vs Junior Varsity game will take place this Saturday at 7:30 at the 'Catdome. It should be a great Saturday for football at Linfield as the 'Cats Varsity will square off vs Lewis & Clark at 1:30 for Homecoming and just a few hours later the 'Cats of the past will face off vs the 'Cats of the future. The Alumni Team coordinator and Linfield assistant coach, Brandon Hazenberg, has confirmed that there are about 55 alumni players that have confirmed they will squeeze into the Linfield purple and white once again. Below is a tentative roster and there will probably be additions/subtractions:
QB: Brett Elliott, Tyler Matthews, Trevor Scharer
RB: Mort Kotler, Dan Lever, Jon Montalvo, Louie Penn, Pete Cruikchank, Riley Jenkins (Possible)
WR: Casey Allen, Brad McKechnie, George Carter, Brandon Hazenberg, Josh Vierra, John Torsey, Travis Master, Andy Jamison, Kyle Warner, Joe O'Neil, Sonte Wong (Possible)
OL: Dwight Donaldson, James Holan, Rob McCollough, Jason Bolin, Jared Hinkle, John Kemper, Bryan Swanson
TE: Joe Siefert, Ben Blosser
Kicker: Scott Cannon, Scott Birkhofer
Defensive End: Wildcat11, Taylor Summers, Nick Soo, Robert Acevedo. Kelley Bertrand
DT: Ricky Gaspar, Mike Ketler; Mitch Chadwick (possible)
LB: Phil Rombach, Ryan Caffall, Brodie Unger; Brandon Olsen, Cam Rogers
Rover: Andrew Bean, Ryan Boatsman
Safety: Brian Mehl, Neil Fendall, Rod Booth
Monster: Keone Twata, Ray Boatsman
Cornerback: Chris Boock; Phil Marr; Josh "Army" Armstrong, Gabe Haberly; Andrew Woods; Joe Smith
Coach Hazenberg would like all of the alumni players to meet after the team break AFTER the Lewis and Clark game is over. If not, be at the stadium around 4:30 PM to get you gear. All you need is a mouthpiece and cleats, as the college will have the uniforms (if we can still fit in them) but bring along your own stuff if you want.
If you are not on this list and want to play please email Coach Hazenberg at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, the team is planning on conducting a silent auction during the alumni game and there should be a large amount of cool Linfield Wildcat football items that will be available. From helmet stickers, shirts to autographed pictures of some of the Linfield greats from the past.
Make sure you make it out to BOTH games this Saturday. Go 'Cats!!!
