PHOTO GALLERY: Foothill faces off against Rosamond

Two teams in different stages of rebuilding met on the gridiron Friday night, and although their respective coaches are seeing progress, host Foothill proved to be a bit further along in the process than Rosamond.

The Trojans, who lost 17 seniors from last year’s Southeast Yosemite League champion — the school’s first football league title since 1981 — opened the season with just four players with varsity experience, according to fifth-year head coach Brandon Deckard.

The inexperience showed with an 0-3 start to the season, including two shutout losses. But after a victory over California City last week, the Trojans continued to showcase their progression on Friday night.

Foothill scored three short rushing touchdowns in the first half, and then added another late in the third quarter, and plodded its way to a 28-0 victory on Homecoming night at Ned Permenter Field.
