"Cody's not a surprise," Steuerwald said of Case-Therrien, who played junior varsity last year. "We knew he's a great [running] back and he's showing that he belongs on the varsity field."
Where some separation between the two teams may occur is in the passing game. While Shen has attempted more throws than Ballston Spa, the Scotties showed last Friday that they can be just as dangerous through the air as they are on the ground when Seager threw two touchdown passes in the first half of their victory over Bethlehem.
"I'm not going to say that we're going to have a balance [between running and throwing the ball], but we are going to use the pass as a counter to our running game," said Bowen.
Kickoff for Thursday's show-down is 7 p.m. at Ballston Spa High School.""
