Brighton Bengals

The next team up in our “At A Glance” series is one that many of the other coaches have picked as this season’s front-runner — the Brighton Bengals.
Head Coach: Brandon Horoba
2015 record: 15-3
2015 playoffs: Class A Semifinals (Lost to Corner Canyon)
Who on your team do you expect to be a stand out player this coming season?
We have a pretty strong senior class and should have quite a few players that stand out this season at any given moment. We are going to rely on each of them at some point this season.
Who is returning to the team that fans may not know but should? 
Hunter Albert and Tennison Schmidt are both strong attackmen and will be overlooked, for sure, but are capable of putting a lot of points on the board.
Who are your team captains?Brighton Bengals
With such a large senior class, we selected 5 players that are leaders for us both on and off the field. Our captains this year are Bryson Taylor, Miles Paulson, Bubba Fairman, Nathan Kenney, and Hunter Albert. All of these players lead by example with their work ethic both on the field and in the classroom. Couldn’t be happier to have these young men as leaders for us entering the 2016 season.
What is your strongest position on the field?
This is tough for us — we have strong players all over. Again we have a lot of returning varsity starters at defense, middie, and attack and on any given day all or one of those will be the standouts for us.

What is the difference between this years team and last years team?
Lots of experience and leadership. Strong senior class that works hard. There is a bond with this team I haven’t seen for quite a while at Brighton.

What is the biggest challenge you will face in conference play this year?
We have quite a few tough match-ups this year. Each game we are going to have to be prepared and ready for what people are going to throw at us.
What single thing are you looking forward to the most this season?
Getting on the field and playing.

Who are the top 3 players in the state not on your team?
Josh Stout, Beau Pederson, Max Franckowiak.
What else should we know about your team?
While we have a lot of experience we will have some new comers we rely heavily on especially in goal where we will have a sophomore, Houston, and a freshman, Canyon, fighting each other for playing time.
