Nikiski football has experience
That's how long it's been since the Nikiski football team captured a small-schools state championship.
With perhaps their strongest unit since the title team of 2001, the Bulldogs open 2011 on their home field against Monroe at 6 p.m. today.
"I think we are sitting in a pretty good place to have a pretty good season," coach Ted Riddall said. "We are playing the teams we are used to playing. We are anticipating a good season."
