Shasta High School preps for regional finals on home turf


REDDING, Calif. - The day of the game has been changed since this article was originally written due to the fires burning in Southern California. The game will now take place on Saturday, December 9.

The Shasta High School football team is preparing for their big game Saturday against Marin Catholic on their home turf.

The Wolves were out practicing Monday for the Northstate Regional Finals on Saturday.

Head Coach J.C. Hunsaker said in his three years as head coach he's tried to make the game fun. Each day the team is working on dialing in plays, making fewer small mistakes and keeping players healthy and injury free.

Hunsaker said Marin Catholic will not be a push-over team. They have a strong passing game and a talented quarterback.

"Don't let it be an aerial assault. And when we do just bend and corral it, offensively we get the ball in our hands we have to put points on the board. We have a high potent offense we can't make mistakes mentally we have to execute and make them pay for giving us the rock," said Hunsaker.

Hunsaker added the playoff system has changed at the state level over the years but the last time Shasta High School was this far in the postseason was 1988.

If they win the team will move on to the championship game in Southern California. The Wolves will take on Marine Catholic Saturday night at 6:00 p.m. at Shasta High School.
