Bear River High School's football team stands with a 5-0 start to the 2012 season but the real test will come Friday night as they cross over the Dog Bar bridge and travel into a hostile environment at Colfax.

The Bruins have posted 164 points while giving up only 94 where the Falcons (3-2) have scored 145 while allowing 63.

Bear River is a run first team as they have carried the ball 231 times to 69 passing. The leading rusher for the Bruins has been Michael Raigoza with 50 touches for 302 yards but there are three other running backs who have 37 or more rushes.

The passing game is led by senior Dillon Smith who has a quarterback rating of 121, which is very high. He did miss a few quarters this fall due to a separated shoulder to his non-throwing arm. His numbers are 50 attempts with 34 completions for a total of 542 yards with 5 touchdowns and two interceptions.

Defending is what this team does well. They have 10 interceptions and 6 fumble recoveries. Jake Savoie leads the team in take a ways with 4 fumbles recovered.

Bear River will need to play the pass this Friday night as the Falcons like to spread their opponent out and pass the ball.

The preseason is over and it is now time to play some games which have playoff implications. The Bruins have historically struggled with the Falcons.
