The Huskie defence is going to be facing a high octane offence when they go up against UBC on Saturday afternoon. The TBirds averaged an impressive 475 yards net offence during the regular season. They boast having the likely CanWest m.v.p. as the triggerman to their attack. “They’re very good, led by Billy Greene,” remarked Huskie defensive end, Jon DeWitt, when asked about the TBirds. “He’s a veteran quarterback with a good receiving corps and a solid OLine in front of him. I think our challenge is to get in his face and make him uncomfortable.” DeWitt was asked if Greene is more of a threat as a rusher or passer. “He’s the total package. He’s obviously a good runner, and he does a very good job of going through his reads, doing his progressions, and then hitting the guy in stride with the ball. He’s definitely a double threat and a good player.”
Jon has had an impact in his first season with the Huskies, following a standout career with the Hilltops; he has registered 23 tackles, including 3 sacks and a fumble recovery. Playing for the Dogs has been an exciting experience for him. “It’s awesome. The facilities are fantastic, you’re treated great, and the game is awesome. Obviously it’s a jump up from CJFL. The preparation that you put in is a good time. I’m enjoying myself a lot.”
Huskie Outsider will try and speak with a few more members of the Huskies before they depart for Vancouver early tomorrow morning. Check back regularly for updates, including Dallas’s game preview.
