Don’t compare ’80s team to today’s Placer Hillmen

-A +A
I have been very disappointed in the historical information that is written in the Auburn Journal. The instance that spurred my e-mail is the latest story on the Hillmen football team making it to the division finals (Journal, Dec. 12). I am a Hillman alum as are my brothers and sister, I feel that you cannot compare the late ’70s to early ’80s team to the team today. They were playing in a whole different division, the area was different and the community was different. I’m not saying that these Hillmen don’t deserve respect, but let’s compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges. It seems as though your writing staff doesn’t have a very good grasp on the history of the area. Thank you. Chris DeArmond  Auburn
