The Broncos feature an effective quarterback in sophomore Chandler Garrett and a dangerous playmaker in Frankie Edwards. Edwards started the season under center but coach Jeremy Dombek changed that in a Week 4 contest against NHS, moving Edwards to running back and also lining him up at receiver while Garrett moved under center.
The move made a dangerous Broncos offense even more potent, and Mustang rolled to a 34-14 victory in that game. That’s the challenge the Timberwolves now face, slowing Garrett while containing Edwards.
“Offensively, we have to start fast and take care of the football,” Standley said. “On defense, we have to be able to contain their big-play guys and have the ability to stop them on third downs. To do that, you have to try and be as sound as you can be in your role.”
One Timberwolves’ player who will be getting his first postseason start is quarterback John Kolar. The junior has spent much of the week watching Mustang’s defense on film, and he’s confident he’s ready to lead the Timberwolves to a new playoff run.
“I’ve got to know everything that’s going on, know all their blitzes and looks,” he said. “As the quarterback, if you don’t know what you’re doing the offense doesn’t know what it’s doing. There’s no nervousness; we all have each others’ backs.”
