Placer Football

Well it’s August and that time of year again. The weather is hot, the skies are smoky and…that’s right, football is back in full swing. In case you missed it, in 2017 the Placer Hillmen won their league Championship for the sixth time, Won the Section Title and were runners-up for the state title! Led by my good friend Head Coach Joey Montoya, the Hillmen look to repeat again this year. Below is their schedule, you can also follow on Max Preps. Come on out and support the Hillmen! If you’re not from Auburn, I’m sure your local program would love to have your support.

If you’re a parent, be sure to bring your kids by Vista Complete Care in Auburn, CA and get their sports physicals in before the season starts. Just call and make an appointment today! We’re also here for any of those bumps, bruises, broken bones, etc.
