The 2003 high-school football season is less than one week away, and excitement is high in the Hood River Valley High School locker room.
Hoping to capitalize on a memorable 2002 campaign, which resulted in a 9-2 overall record and a second-place finish in the Intermountain Conference, the Eagles believe they have all the pieces to compete again in 2003.
Led by a young core of offensive players, the Eagles played in a jamboree at Centennial High School on Friday, and will begin the preseason next Friday (Sept. 5) at The Dalles.
Junior Alex Princehouse was named the starting quarterback for the Eagles, who learned they will be without expected starter Dennis Methvin this season.
As it stands right now, junior Adam Brown will share the primary running duties with senior Rocky Level.
For an in-depth preview of the 2003 team, see the Sept. 3 edition of the Hood River News.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue
Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
