The Bear River Junior Bruins football club will play host to Grant on Saturday for their first home stand of the season.

I spoke to BRJB Peewee coach Cory Cregar on Thursday about what the home opener means to his team. While he was modest about his 3-0 start to the season he did not hold back as he spoke about his team. "This is a great group of 22 boys who play hard," Cregar said. "By the end of the weekend we will know how we stack up." The PeeWee team is currently in a four way log jam for first place and one game ahead of this weeks' foe.

Cregar has concerns of outside containment as the Pacers have a very athletic quarterback who is better than any one player they have seen all season. "He (Grant's QB) is fast and he reads the corner-back very well. If we let him get outside and out corner-back comes up on him he will throw the ball deep but if he stays back to defend the receiver he will run for 15 yard, if he get comfortable we are trouble." Cregar stated.

Cregar also said Sam Davis had a great game last week and he will play some outside linebacker and hopes  he will be able to give some help to the team on outside containment. " Sam had a key sack in the 4th quarter last weekend at Bradshaw and he has been unstoppable at practice," Cregar said. " Look for him to cause some trouble."

Calder Kunde comes into Saturday's game with five touchdowns and 220 yards rushing for the Bruins. "We will look to switch things up a bit and look to get some other guys some touches," Cregar said. "As the other teams start to key in on him we will use him as a decoy."

Last season the Bruins fell 20-6 but they did turned the ball over four times including two interceptions inside the red zone. This season BR quarterback Josiah Cregar comes into the contest throwing 10 for 12 with 67 yards and only one pick. "We will look to spread them out and throw a little more," Cregar said about his offensive game plan.

Roseville, Granite Bay, Lincoln and Bear River are all without a loss and Grant has only dropped one. Bear River's league only sends four team to the playoff so this will be a big test for the team. "This is a Hugh game for us," Cregar said.
