Quote: “I would say the kids are just like the kids I left three years ago. The challenge for us is always going to be do we have enough linemen and do we have enough athleticism? For us a premium has to be put on execution, taking care of the football and being unique in the kicking game. All of those things — how we built it before — we’ve got to go back and reconstruct that.” — Brentwood coach Ron Crawford, who won a state title (2002) during his first coaching stint with the Bruins (2002-11).
