Photo submitted Greg Knight Sports Writer sports@plu As the new head coach of the Feather River College Golden Eagles football team, Scott Brade has been chosen as the man to lead the squad on the gridiron in fall and, he says, motivate his players to excel in the academic environment on campus. Brade sat down with Feather Publishing last week to discuss his new position at the college, his philosophy on football and details of his life and times as a football coach over the past two decades. Q. What is your coaching experience at the college level? A. This is my 12th year coaching college football, in addition to my many years coaching high school and youth football. I've coached at NCAA Division II, Division III, NJCAA and California community college levels of competition. In my coaching opportunities I have coordinated offense, defense and special teams and have served as a recruiting coordinator, strength coordinator, football academic coordinator and college instructor. I've been involved in every aspect of running a college football program and feel confident in my role here at Feather River College. I see great potential for success here. Q. What is your long-term vision for football at FRC? A. I think the most important thing is that the young men we recruit, that they know what they are buying into when they come to Feather River College and that they are here for the right reason, which is to get their education. That is why our players are called student-athletes rather than just athletes. I think our young men should be upstanding and respected in the community. We're going to look into our players doing community service in the future: These things will help mold them into the type of men we want in this community and on this team.• If they do those things and work hard on the academics beforecompeting in the fall, we feel we can do great things. Scott Brade is ready to get to work coach at Feather River College. Photo Q. Given the turnover in head coaches during recent seasons, do you plan on staying at FRC for many years to come? • A. My oldest son is 12 years old and will be in seventh grade soon, so I am looking forward to him graduating high school here in Quincy. That's at least six years and right now my wife Shannon and I are working on getting established here. In the long as the new head football by Greg Knight term this is the perfect place and opportunity for me. I'm a small-town guy that prefers not to have a lot of concrete underneath my feet. I love to hunt and fish and I love the outdoors. This area has all that and additionally is a great professional opportunity. Q. What are your plans to jump start the recruiting See Brade; page 6C SPORTS DESK. from page 1C the best win-loss record by percentage of any boys' team in the county at .727. The winning effort put forth by the Indians is indeed a team effort, but credit, like a river, has to flow to its inevitable outlet. That credit, in large part, goes to what has been called the "one- two punch" of sophomore Justus Eaglesmith and senior Walker Meyers. Between the two of them, Eaglesmith and Meyers have scored 367 of the 644 points scored by Greenville in the first 10 games of the 2014-15 season• Onthe whole, Eaglesmith has averaged 21 points a game, with Meyers tallying up 15 of his own m every match. That "one-two punch" has been giving heartburn to many teams in the preseason and, hopefully, will continue to do so as the Indians continue through their league opponents. According to Kusel, there is also a third fist in the arsenal of Greenville: 6-foot-3 senior center Christian Beres. "We have been anchored in center by Beres, who has become quite a defensive presence on the team and did great things for us during the Elk Creek tournament," Kusel said. Not to be underestimated, the entire Greenville team has also been on fire in the lead-up to PML competition• Seniors Anthony Cardoza, Logan Kingsland, James Martinez and Beres have shot for a combined 149 points and pounded the boards for 116 rebounds in the same 10-game stretch. Juniors Darian Potts, Ray Bustamante and Kacee Clark have also been offensive drivers to combine for 103 points. Corte Smith and Sheridan Kusel have 24 points to their credit so far this season. This year, the Indians are on target to best their 2013-14 season record, which ended • up at 14-13 overall and 6-2 in league. For those that remember, the Indians were only tossed from the D-6 playoff hunt last year after losing a tough game tb Maxwell, a team that is always hard to beat no matter what you do with your X's and O's. Maxwell went 24-3 last year and has managed to go 6-8 overall this season. Thus, I see hope for the Indians' chances going forward. If the entire team can stay healthy and motivated, with the damage the trio of Eaglesmith, Meyers and Beres can seemingly muster on a dailybasis staying the course, this could be one heck of a season for basketball in Indian Valley.
