Lions ready for Rensselaer Central

November 14, 2013

BREMEN — As head coach of the Bremen Lions, Bob Holmes is tasked each week with breaking down game tape to find weaknesses in the Lions’ opponents.
The problem is, he’s having trouble finding any in this week’s regional foe, Renssealer Central.
“First and foremost, I don’t think they have any weaknesses,” said Holmes. “That’s not something you can usually say about a football team — you can usually find something that you want to exploit, and we just can’t find a whole lot of cracks in Rensselaer’s game. They’re fundamentally sound, and they play some great team football.”
