Portland and Deering set for 106th annual Turkey Bowl

...The Bulldogs who advanced all the way to the Class A North finals before falling to Windham will be looking for their 59th win in the series while the Rams are hoping to end their season on a positive note.

"We haven't really had a successful season as we'd hope we'll try to do our best to get the 'W,' Deering quarterback Jack Lynch said.

"Both teams were down this year and you know how it goes it gets personal in the city you know," Deering head coach Jason Jackson said.

"This is a wonderful game its great tradition the boys are excited I'm excited," Portand head coach Jim Hartman said.

Portland High player thankful for his new home, new sport
Junior defensive lineman Nate Kapongo, who grew up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, has quickly made a name for himself.

...While Kapongo’s skills are raw, his ability to dead-lift 500 pounds five times on his first trip to the weight room shows his natural strength. When Kapongo got his hands on ball carriers this season, they often were stopped in their tracks.

“There are times when he’ll dominate games,” said Rutherford. “The (playoff) games we won at Lewiston and Oxford Hills, he dominated. We don’t get to the (regional) final without him.”

Kapongo said he had a brief conversation with a UMaine assistant coach when the Black Bears played Delaware at Fitzpatrick Stadium this fall. He’s unsure where that will lead but said he would like to play college football and “I think I can.”

“I just like the game,” he said. “You know, it’s pretty amazing. It’s pretty fun.”

.....only if the arrogant, unfounded, insidious, surface level rhetoric of O'leary and his Deering counterpart are given validity, which will not be the case. We in Portland and elsewhere in Maine understand the significance of perseverance and when it needs to be unyieldingly applied.
