In what’s shaping up to be another exciting season over at Brentwood High School, Bruins quarterback Cade Granzow’s gritty close to a gripping 9-6 overtime win with MBA earns him our Player of the Week honor.
The junior Granzow still combined for 165 yards of total offense in a defensive-heavy game, and scored the game-winning touchdown, a walkoff scramble into the end zone to get Brentwood off to a 1-0 start and a win against a D-II AAA powerhouse.
The Bruins still have a long way to go this season, but Granzow’s gutsy play to get the team a non-region win earns him our City Cafe Player of the Week honor.
