Jon Schaeffer gives you a look into why Grant County Flasher is the team to beat in Region

The Grant County Flasher Storm are a force to be reckoned with in 9 man football.
After making the move from Class A Head Coach Jamie Krenz says his team is going to take advantage of the space on the field.

(JAMIE KRENZ/ GRANT COUNTY FLASHER HEAD COACH)"It's an explosive game and we're gonna play fast too. We're going to embrace it a little bit. We're gonna get after people defensively and offensively."

To get ready for the move to nine man-- His players put in the time in the off-season.

(JAMIE KRENZ)"We put some time in to go to some nine man camps and doing those types of things."

(JW FROELICH/ WIDE RECEIVER GCF)"Me and Taylor and Zach we throw a lot and we get together and just run routes and throw and work on our game."

(JAMIE KRENZ)"Bottom line, it's still football and still blocking and tackling and just got a few more funky formations and stuff but we're looking forward to it."

Krenz's son Taylor is under center once again this season as a senior-- and hasn't missed a beat.
In the Storm's second game this year they were as explosive as you can get on the offensive side of the ball...
Taylor threw for over 400 yards and 7 touchdowns on Saturday against Bowman County.

(TAYLOR KRENZ/QUARTERBACK GCF)"It's a dream for me I got all these good receivers and good linemen up front get our guys into open space and let them do their thing."
One of his go too wide outs is long time teammate--Senior J.W. Froelich.

(FROELICH)"We've been playing together since we were fourth graders and we're hoping to make a good run this year. Win the region for sure and hopefully make it farther than we did last year and I think we have a good shot at that."

Taylor Krenz has been working toward one goal since he was a young football player.
In his final go around he'd love nothing more than to check it off the list.

(TAYLOR KRENZ)"State tournament has been one of my goals for my whole life coach has kind of been prepping me for that so it would be big to get there especially with my dad as the coach."

If the first two games of the season are any indication-- a state tournament appearance is a strong possibility for Grant County Flasher.

Grant County-Flasher is at Beach this Friday night at 8 central, 7 mountain.

Beach is also 2 and 0, they've beaten Trenton Trinity Chrisitan and Hettinger Scranton
