Although Scott never played against Ferndale while in high school , has had the opportunity to experience this rivalry from a coaching prospective. As a running back and safety for Lynden in 1991-1992, Scott rushed for 2681 yards and 23 TDs, and was selected to the all-WCL first team both years, as well as being picked as the WCL offensive player of the year as a senior. After walking on at WSU in 1993, Noteboom transferred to WWU in 1996, played in a national championship game, and finished his college career with 2273 all-purpose yards and was an all-CFA selection at running back and as a kick returner. After a tour in the military, he earned a teaching degree and began coaching at Lynden in 2008, switching from middle school to varsity in 2010.
Paula LaRose, along with her husband Jim, have been a part of the Ferndale School District and Community for generations. Paula has supported Ferndale Football as our scorekeeper for 45 years and never missed a game. It all started when her husband, Jim LaRose, who has recently passed away, was working as the Athletic Director at Ferndale High School and needed someone to run the scoreboard and asked Paula if she would be willing to fill in and help out. That was the beginning of Paula’s long time commitment to Ferndale Golden Eagle football.
