KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Kamiakin Braves have a ton of talent, and now their depth is even greater. Last week vocal and physical leader Drew Oord returned from his suspension for violating student code. He rejoins Zach Umemoto in the backfield and the linebacker core. Plus quarterback Jason Hutchinson is filling into the leadership role and learning to read defenses better. It will make for a great match-up against Kennewick's top-ranked defense Friday on SWX.

"We always read, we look at the first option but we have to look at what their defense is doing so it's more of what we see out there more than just seeing one receiver," Hutchinson said. "Jason throws a pretty good ball. It's always there. He seems to be finding the right receiver. It's not always to me. It's to other people on our team. So if I'm open he throws it to me, which is pretty good," wide receiver and defensive back Jesse Houser added. Also, head coach Scott Biglin said, "You know we talk to Jason a lot about not focusing one guy because the more diverse we are spreading the ball out, the tougher it is to defend us."
