Hot and Heavy Hitting

As summer vacation draws to a close, Rogers High School varsity football players Franklin Antoine and Andre Quiroa practice one-on-one blocking drills under the keen eye of offensive and defensive line coach Chris Lewia. INSET: Head coach Frank Newsome watches intently as his other lineman attack the blocking sleds in morning sessions. The Vikings seek another trip to the playoffs in Division II this season, after finishing 6-2 in league play in 2014. Their first opponent this season will be Vikings nemesis Division I Portsmouth High School in a non-league game set for a 7 p.m. kickoff at Toppa Field on Friday, Sept. 11.
