Sierra’s Player of the Game: Scott Teicheira

Scott Teicheira’s will and skill set are the epitome of the 2015 Sierra football team. Teicheira, a starting center and linebacker for the Timberwolves, isn’t built like a mountain like some other prominent football players in the area. No, the senior Teicheira is 5-foot-7, and though he’s strong, earns everything he gets. Teicheira was on [...]
