EL CAJON (10-21-16) — After suffering a black eye in a 79-18 knockout at Fullerton last week, the Griffins hope to regain their footing with a home game at Mashin-Roth Field against Orange Coast College on Saturday (Oct. 22) at 1 p.m.

The Griffins (4-2, 0-1 National Southern Conference) must recover from one of the most devastating losses in their history as they host the Pirates.

Meanwhile, Palomar’s Matt Romero hooked up with Terrell Arnold for a touchdown catch last week with 17 seconds left in a game against Orange Coast. Sam Tapia drilled the PAT and the Comets beat the Pirates, 28-27.

Grossmont counts on running back NEHEMIAH BROWN, who has rushed for 383 yards and 6 touchdowns on 84 carries.

KEITH FULTON also rushed for 269 yards and 3 touchdowns on 54 carries.

There is some question as to who will be the Griffins quarterback. At this time it is undecided – starter BRAD CAGLE (1153 yards, 9 TDs) or SPENCER MOYER (497-4 TDs).
