All-Time Series: Dunmore leads 4-2
Quick Fact: GAR turned over the ball seven times in the last meeting.
Scouting Dunmore: Dunmore lost in the Class A state title game last year, but picked up where it left off. The Bucks flattened North Pocono 48-13, with star RB Daiqwon Buckley rushing for 186 yards and four TDs. QB Brandon Kujawski gives the team one of the more experienced backfields in District 2. OL James McHale has made a verbal commitment to Temple.
Scouting GAR: The Grenadiers fell 27-19 to long-distance nemesis Lakeland in their opener. RB Rich Sickler had 158 yards on the ground and QB Rashaun Mathis was solid in his debut. The defense kept Lakeland’s ground game in check, but was torched through the air. It probably won’t be tested via pass much vs. Dunmore.
What To Expect: GAR is going to need to bring its A-game to defeat Dunmore, which is stoked to make another deep run in the state playoffs.
