Southridge Ready for More History

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Last season, the Southridge Suns went where no other sun football team had ever gone before.  After starting the year 0-4, they turned things around to reach the second round of the state playoffs.  They cracked the Kamiakin Braves vaunted defense in the first round before losing to Bellevue.
"Last year we went to uncharted territories," said coach Andy Troxel.  "That's where we hope to go again."
Troxel runs a shotgun spread offense that allows returning starting QB Andrew Mendenhall, and all-conference receivers Clayton Homme and Devin Jones, the chance to attack defenses at every opportunity.
"Its great just to get the chance and the opportunity to make plays," said Homme.  "We've got a quarterback that has the skills to make time and throw it to us.  It's a great opportunity."
"Our teams goal is to go to state and win a state championship," said Mendenhall. "I expect that and there's not gonna be one day that ill doubt that."
Southridge hopes to start out on the winning track september 5 at Couer d'Alene.
