Game Preview: Brophy v. Mt. Ridge

Breaking down Wednesday's big division-one early match-up

Preview: Phoenix (Az.) Brophy @ Glendale (Az.) Mountain Ridge

Last week: Opening game for both teams.

Players to Watch: Brophy- 4-star QB Tyler Bruggman (Washington State commit), 4-star WR Devon Allen, 2-star OG Charlie Renfree, 2-star OLB Andrew Curtis, 2-star OLB Robert Relf, RB D'Amani Grayer, DT Dominic Riccitelli, junior OL Austin Hall

Mt. Ridge- 2-star RB Treshawn Favors, junior OL Troy Kowalski

Keys to a Brophy victory: Brophy is going into this game as the heavy favorite but they cannot overlook the Mountain Lions to Saturday's game versus nationally ranked Santa Margarita from California. Coach Molander is known as one of the top football coaches in Arizona, so the kids I don't think this will be a problem. Brophy has to come in and play up to their potential.

Keys to a Mountain Ridge victory: Mt. Ridge is breaking in a new offensive coordinator, so there will be a little of unknown for the Broncos headed into this game. Feed the ball to the fast kid! RB Treshawn Favors ran a 4.35 forty this summer and the only player on the field faster will be Devon Allen. Ridge must try to contain Allen and pressire Bruggman into some bad throws.
