Capital High football opens the 2018 regular season on the road. The Bruins visit Great Falls High at Memorial Stadium on Friday with kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m.
Capital came back from a 13-0 deficit at home to beat the Bison in the 2017 opener. Bruins head coach Kyle Mihelish says both teams are young and hungry entering this season.
"We're gonna have five or six juniors starting on both sides of the ball and that was expected so it's not a surprise to us. I'm just anxious to see these guys play. We're gonna have to settle in with kind of a new system and a new quarterback. A lot of new young guys on the offensive side. One thing I know we've gotta do defensively is we've gotta prevent big plays. I think it's good for us to be on the road because we're gonna be together. It's allows us to focus," said Kyle Mihelish.
"Read the wide receivers, read the quarterback, and make sure they don't get any big plays. I'm feeling pretty good. I think we'll do fine," said defensive back and running back Noah Braden.
Capital advanced to the AA state playoff semifinal round in 2017 before losing to Helena.
