They do a lot better against the pass, but they’ve yet to be totally ran over. BU running back was tough to bring down, though.
Regarding size, no comment.

This will be an interesting game. Unless anyone on this thread has the film and is on the inside, I think the game we’re forseeing here is a different one than both coaching staffs are expecting. Trimble is the favorite, and deservedly so; they’re a top 10 team in the state. FC is a 21pt dog, per Drew Pasteur - I think they’ll beat the spread.
This should be a good game. Even if it ultimately results in “the clock”, there’s absolutely nothing to hang your head about if you’re FC. They’re embracing this opportunity. It’s been a long time, a long time since their last playoff appearance. Some of the coaches from then stayed on and will be on the sidelines on Saturday. It’s very special to be here, and the playoff pandemonium is enough a torch to light the flame for this group of young men. Win, or lose, they know that all we expect is their best effort and representation.
