2012 Preview: Tulelake Football



Tulelake Honkers
(2011 Record: N/A – No team in 2011)

After reviving the varsity program at Tulelake High School, longtime coach Shane Wood is excited to see the results from his and his team’s transition to eight-man football. The Honkers did not field a team in 2011 and only played three varsity games the year before.

The move to the eight-man game will be successful depending on the play of first-time junior quarterback Trako Saluskin and the other position players. Wood should have a decent offensive line anchored by his son Derek Wood, who played at Modoc last season. The team’s success might also depend on how well the two-sport athletes hold up. There are a handful of players also on the soccer team.


Head Coach: Shane Wood (12th year, non-consecutive, at Tulelake)

Returning Starters: N/A
- Notable Returners: Derek Wood (OL) played at Modoc last season

Key Newcomers: Trako Saluskin (QB), Dakota Massey (OL), Dylan Miller (RB), Luke Ploass (OL/DE), Logan Herman (WR), Wyatt Cureton (WR), Jace Burrier (WR)
