SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- Last season, Sunnyside's playoffs hopes were gone with a loss in a tiebreaking game against Hanford. And with the end of the season, the Grizz also graduated all but one of their starters.
And Coach Mark Marro's reliance on young players can also be seen at quarterback, where 2 sophomores, Frankie Ochoa and Andrew Daley, are battling senior Michael Rodriguez for the starting spot.
Daley says,"It helps me to know I have someone pushing me."
Rodriguez says, "Whoever coach picks, we have to respect that."
The team opens their season friday at Grandview and don't expect the competition at quarterback to be over by gametime.
Marro says, "W'ere gonna let them go out each have a couple series and see what happens."
It will be interesting to see which Sunnyside quarterback comes out with the top spot.
