Calaveras head coach Doug Clark’s thoughts on Modesto Christian: “They are always a great program, but they have years that, depending on recruiting and the fact that it’s a small school to begin with, they can go really far up or really far down. I’m not sure about this year. I know there’s been some turnover with the coaching staff, but we are taking it as this is a Modesto Christian team that is up. We are coming off of a 24-0 loss to them last year, so regardless of whether they are up or down, we are going to attack it the same.”
