Chicken Charlie’s Pigskin Idol Game of the Week: Santana Sultans 42, Mountain Empire Redhawks 7

As we put a wrap to Week 1, we must first thank the Football “Higher Powers” for coming back to us for yet another season.

The Chicken Charlie’s FRYBQ Pigskin Idol Game of the Week headlined the Mount Empire RedHawks visiting the Santana Sultans. In this one, it was the home team the prevailed as the Sultans took down the RedHawks 42-7.

This one was all Sultans as Quarterback Nathan Temple found his Junior Wide Receiver Randy Smith for three touchdowns throughout the course of the night.

Some might say the play of the game was when Brooks Moutaw ripped off a 26-yard touchdown run to make the score 28-0 at that time.

Mountain Empire will look to bounce back next week as they take on the Cougars of San Ysidro. Both teams will be searching for win number one on the 2018 Season.

For the Sultans, they get to keep the home-field advantage in Week 2 as they face off with the Serra Conquistadors.

PREVIEW – The 2018 season is upon us which means we have our first Chicken Charlie’s FRYBQ Pigskin Idol Game of the Week. This matchup will consist of the Mountain Empire RedHawks traveling into Santee, CA to take on the Santana Sultans.

Last year, the RedHawks got a sniff of the playoffs, but their experience was short lived as they traveled to Vincent Memorial and lost 41-7 to the Scots. The RedHawks have a handful of players returning from last year’s team, including senior QB Gabriel Hydorn, who just so happens to also be a key player for the RedHawks basketball team.

The Sultans will be looking to start their season off on the right foot to put themselves in a good position to make the playoffs once again. In 2017, the Sultans had an early exit from the postseason after a first-round loss to the Rancho Buena Vista Longhorns 62-43.

This is a non-conference matchup but still is extremely important for both teams. Many have said, “it’s not about how you start, it’s about how you finish,” but I am sure both head coaches and their teams want to get off to a great start.

Please make sure to tune into the start of the twentieth season of the Prep Pigskin Report this Friday at 11:00 pm and do not miss out on the PrePR First and Fifteen starting at 10:45 pm on KUSI.
