Griz Make Final Preparations for Eastern Washington

Posted: Updated:

When you start to game plan against the Eastern Washington Eagles it has to start and end with their offense. The Eagles are scoring nearly 45 points over 500 yards per game and it all begins with their star Quarterback Vernon Adams.

"I think what makes him so good at what he does is he moves around a lot and he's good at extending plays kind of like JJ is," said Junior Linebacker Kendrick Van Ackeren.

In the Eagles worst game offensively they still put 26 points on the board. The Griz know they have chances to score they need to get touchdowns and can't settle for field goals.

"You know you can't waste possessions like that against that good of an offense because they are going to go down and score and when we do have our good drives on Saturday we have to make them touchdowns," said Griz Quarterback Jordan Johnson.

"We are not going to stop it we just have to limit and and when we get a big play we have to match it and we can't match touchdowns with field goals we need to match touchdowns with touchdowns," said Griz Head Coach Mick Delaney.

Adams wasn't fully healthy when the Griz played Eastern a month ago and neither was their great running back Quincy Forte, who looks to be good to go this Saturday.

"He's a good running back he runs well and hits the hole hard and I think that gives them an added dimension to their offense and i hope the way we have defended the run we can stop that and have them focus on their passing game," said Van Ackeren.

So it's a match up of the conference's number one offense versus the number one defense and who wins that battle will most likely win the game.
