Rocklin, CA -The 2013 Sierra College football season kicks off with a new team, a new coach and a new event.
First-year Sierra mentor, Ben Noonan, will show off his team Saturday, Aug. 24 at the first "Meet the Wolverines" scrimmage and fan-fest at Homer "Buzz" Ostrom Stadium, located on the Rocklin Campus.
Noonan is slated to run his team through a full-pad intersquad scrimmage beginning at 10:00am with fans getting a preview of the innovative new Sierra offense and defensive coordinator Ed Eaton's highly regarded defense. Immediately following the two-hour scrimmage, fans will be allowed on the field to "Meet the Wolverines" and Coach Noonan and his coaching staff.
