The Kamloops Broncos have worked their tails off at main camp, which began last Monday and ends on Friday at Hillside Stadium.
Their rear ends are now the primary targets of the Valley Huskers, who will be at Hillside Stadium for Week 1 of the B.C. Football Conference season on July 29.
“If you want to watch some hard smack-mouth football, make the drive up to Kamloops and watch us kick their butt,” Huskers’ defensive lineman Travis Dietrich told the Chilliwack Progress earlier this week.
Travis Dietrich is used to inflicting pain upon B.C. Football Conference opponents from his defensive end position.
But some would argue he is also a glutton for punishment returning to the Valley Huskers for a fourth season of junior.
When all-Canadian linebacker Layne Hull graduated from the program at the end of last season, the Okanagan Sun had lost a level of both leadership and skill not easily replaced.
And while Hull will no doubt be missed, the addition of Shaun Robinson to the Sun defense for the 2017 B.C. Football Conference season has made the departure just that much more bearable
