Bruin gridders will open the football season at home this Friday against Hughson.

"Hughson is always tough. They have to be because they plan in the Trans Valley League. They have a new coach this year. That's about all we know about them at this point," said Riverbank High School assistant coach Monte Wood.

The Hughson players are called the Huskies and wear uniforms of black and gold.

The junior varsity squads will take the field for the preliminary game at 5:30 p.m. and the varsity teams start at 7:30 p.m. in the Angelo Novi Stadium.

This is the only non-league game on the schedule. On Friday, Sept. 17, the Bruins will plunge straight into Southern League play. Their opponent will be LeGrand, with the game again in Riverbank.
