Way to get the win against a good Northridge team. Hopefully Fremont can learn from things that happened in this game and expand their offense to more than just Vigil and Preator running the ball. They moved right down the field when they started passing the ball and that opened up the running game. Note to Fremont coaches: Using the passing game effectively will open up the running game.

Fremont vs Davis for the region title. Syracuse doesnt have the "O" and Northridge doesnt have the leadership. Northridge has the talent, they just dont understand how to use it and how to game plan. Oh, and Fremont wins it all this year.

9:57 left in the 4th will possibly go down as the turning point for 2011 Fremont Football.....it is when an angel enlightened Offensive Coordinator Mimnaugh that running north-south will both gain yardage & eat clock. "Run from the Gun" Mimnaugh has been leaving his offense to easy to predict and too easy to scout. The net effectiveness of Nick Vigil can only be enhanced now that Fremont is executing more north south running.

#18 Copper Kelley was much stronger lining up under center then executing from the gun, so kudos to the staff for finally figuring this out, additionally the Fremont O-line was far more effective with a QB under center then in "gun".

The Wolves starting receiver corp are especially challenged at both speed & jump-reach consequently it will imperative that a strong running game be established early on so as to keep the opposition off balance when pass is needed.

The double TE set with #38 Brock Smith & #31 Luke Hollingsworth will enhance RB options & pass opportunities, more importantly in the case of #31 yards after reception. Fremont may have turned the corner. Go-Wolves

Papi_Chulo...amen! fbfan.....right on, next weeks match-up will diffenantly be the region 1 winner. viperguy... great great points (again). I might add that Fremont's defense seems to have taken a big step forward with the improved play from the LB Corp. The corners are still very soft on their coverage and the vaunted D-line (what a bunch of studs) is killing it when the Def Coach as not calling those silly silly stunts. I counted this week....all the defensive line stunts took the lineman out of the play....everyone!

Can't wait for the game this Friday against Davis. Hope my boys from Fremont come ready and fired up for what should be a great matchup and also a deciding factor for who will be the Region 1 champions. Good luck Fremont!!

I'm a Northridge fan, but I wont miss this Fremont/Davis game. The Northridge Coaches give me a gut ache. I'm going to watch real big boy football. Region 1 will be decided this week. Good luck Fremont!! Your my pick, don't let me down.

I have always enjoyed the banter and I am a die-hard Fremont fan. apexhunter's comments got me going cause he is exactly right about the Fremont defensive stunts! Why do they execute them cause they always take a key lineman out of the play? I also want to know why the offensive coaches have the need for the dad-gum QB to run to the sideline to get each play????????? So much time has and is wasted with the poor QB running to the sideline and many times its out and out wasting time that is not always Fremont't to waste. Fremont just shuttle the play in!

Hat-tip to viperguy regarding the double tight end set of Smith & Hollingsworth. Hollingsworth #31 is arguably the best TE in the state and he is not even starting at TE. I just looked up Hollingsworth's numbers and see that he could also be a formidable ball carrying FB on a full-time basis. Can anyone imagine having to defend against a FB in Hollingsworth and a TB in Vigil? Oh lordie. Lets hope we see some of this in the future.

MMQB I have watched numerous games and countless practices (from the parking lot) and I am amazed that Fremont does not let Hollingsworth bang out the ball more on offense. I was reading the piece on Bingham's #4 Daniel Palepoi and the kid sizes out at 5'11" and 225lbs. Hollingsworth is actually a 6'3" kid sizing around 230lbs and runs a 4.6 forty!!! MMQB you have hit the head on the nail, why on earth is Hollingsworth not in the backfield as Fullback with Vigil???? I think we need to apply some physics going into these next key region games.

Agree with all the comments made. Hopefully Fremont will apply these things in the upcoming weeks.

I am perplexed as to the cause of a certain fans gut aches. According to the box score, the Northridge coaches orchestrated 305 total yards while the Fremont coaches generated only 240 total yards. What objective Northridge fan would not be happy with that? For those who watched the game, it was obvious that the scoring discrepancy was directly linked to costly turnovers. As much as some fans may try, the inability to hold onto the ball seems difficult to pin on the coaches. Frustrated fans with gut aches who feel inclined to take pot shots at coaches may wish to consult the box score first. Otherwise, you may risk revealing yourself, once again, as a misinformed fan with an ax to grind. Fremont and Northridge are two solid teams I would not be surprised to see them face each other again.

I got to watch all of Fremont's practice yesterday and a hour today before work and I must say the coaching staff have done a remarkable turnaround in strategy. Great adjustments on defense and I mean some very significant steps forward...while on offense we are beginning to see a staff that is also looking ahead a bit and doing what is required to be relevant in the post season, I will not reveal anything more other then Fremont has turned the corner and look for a much more robust team Friday.

I will acknowledge that turnovers plagued Northridge, and that was unfortunate for them but I believe Fremont will navigate thru Davis & Syracuse with much more dominance then Northridge. But if there is a rematch it couldn't be with a nicer bunch of fans then Northridge! Real nice folks. OBTW what a great cheerleading squad, probably the hardest working and best I have ever seen.

Thanks for your comments ViperGuy. I'm glad to hear from you that Fremont has turned the corner and I hope to see it play out this Friday night against Davis.

Wow great news viperguy!!! Northridge fans sorry for turning this thread from a very nice writer re: last weeks game, into a Fremont fan fest but this weeks game is so critical! Hoping Deseret News dedicates a story tomorrow to the upcoming Fremont vs Davis region 1 matchup. I too have heard that this weeks perpetrations at Fremont have taken on a new level of professionalism and pin point adjustments to insure Silver Wolf success. I am so excited to see more astute play calling from the offense! Love this time of year.

You guys all have very good points. Brock Smith Is A Very good TE. he needs to get the ball more so everyone can see his talent. And in my opinion they should play the wild cat a little more. Jordan Preator, Nick Vigil, and Luke Holingsworth. 90% of the time Jordan Preator is in, he Marches us down the field. They just don't give him the opportunity to finish it. I understand he cant play all the time on "O" because he is the safety but every time we need to get somewhere coaches put him in until he gets to the 20 then takes him and and 50% of the time we don't end up scoring. WE "Fremont" have really good coaches they just don't make the best play calling sometimes. I think if we can pull it together We easily have the talent plus some too take it all the way. P.S:I beleave Jordan Preator Runs a 4.1 or 4.2 forty.

Almost game time! Can't wait and KSL GameNight live will be there. Hopefully this game doesn't end like the last game did when KSL GameNight came to the Fremont game. (Jordan) It's a perfect day for football. Go Silver Wolves!!
