Guam - This Saturday at the UOG Field, the Cars Plus Rams and Pepsi Warriors meet up in a rematch of last year's championship game. KUAM Sports caught up with Senators Brant McCreadie and Tommy Morrison two former quarterbacks from opposing sides to get their take on this weekend's game. Brant played quarterback for the Cars Plus Rams while Tommy played for the Pepsi Warriors.
Senator McCreadie said, "The game has changed a lot since the early 90's and moving into 2013 and I think that the biggest change that we see is the youth and the speed of the game. Back when I played in the 90's and as far as the early 2000's there was a lot of veteran players and a lot of old timers so to speak. So the game is not as quick as it is today. The key to victory for the Rams would be their key leadership and their veterans that have been there before. So that will be key for them and of course they have a good coaching staff. So if they get the lead early and their veterans come out and they do what they are supposed to do and they play together as a team and they don't turn the ball over I think the Rams will do quite well."
The last time the guys from the Warriors team won the MFL title was back in 1997. The team was called the Giants and they won by a field goal over the Miller Bears.
Senator Morrison noted, "They've always had a sound core and sound coaching staff and they have kept most of that game plan particular with the running game. They have always established a sound backfield and they got a good line. I know the game has got a lot quicker and faster but I think Pepsi will stick to its bread and butter with the ground game. You have the Chairman of the Board Ryan Rios and it's great to still see him out there. He brings a lot of veteran leadership on the field and I believe it's going to come down to who has the better running game and I think Pepsi can establish that a lot more this year. I know they have the core players over there and I think Pepsi will get the job done this weekend."
