Seven years has been way too long.
“It has been seven years,” explained Nevada Union Head Football Coach Dave Humphers. “It’s unfortunate because it’s always been such a great game.”
Humphers is telling the truth. In 19 meetings between the Miners and Grant Pacers the all-time series is tied 15-15-1.
The last meeting between the two, however, wasn’t so great. Back in 2005, Nevada Union throttled the Pacers 30-0 in a Sac Joaquin Section playoff game at Hughes Stadium. But now the rivalry is back, at least this year.
Friday night Grant will host N.U. in a game that will feature 2 of the top 5 high school programs in the area.
“It’s the biggest game of my life,” explained Miners quarterback Kyle Cota.
“We pride ourselves on defense, so does Grant,” commented Humphers. “We score a lot of points with our offense, so does Grant. I think people are in for a treat if they come out to this game Friday night.”
