PASCO -- The Central Valley Bears have one of the more versatile players in the Greater Spokane League in RB Brandon Garcia, but their defense is allowing nearly 300 yards a game, which could prove deadly against an efficiently run Chiawana Riverhawks offense led by QB Lucas Graff and RB Jordan Downing.
"Sometimes our offense is our best defense," said Chiawana coach Steve Graff. "If we can keep the ball away from people and score points, we can control the game."
