Success on the gridiron starts in the trenches, and usually people think of the offensive line when they hear that. But the same holds true on the defensive side of the ball, and the Sterling Golden Warriors credit much of their success this season to the guys on the D-line.

While their official nickname is Golden Warriors, the Sterling football team should maybe change it to Road Warriors. For the fourth time in five weeks, Sterling (4-1, 3-0) will get on the bus – and it’s another long trip, as the Warriors head to Quincy for a Western Big 6 game.
