Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The captains of the Duluth East Greyhounds were advocating a very physical brand of football for this Friday's home game against Minneapolis North.

"We are going to feed off the crowd, feed off all our friends and family who are there," Greyhounds senior captain Leo Spott said. "We're going to smack them in the mouth, and we're hoping for a 'W.'"

The Greyhounds are (1-3) this season and coming off a big 63-0 road loss to South St. Paul, but are optimistic about the second half of the season.

"I like the confidence," Greyhounds senior captain Jordan Hoffmann said. "We know what we're doing most of the time. We're ready to go at it and push hard."

"I like passing the ball, personally," Duluth East senior captain Brolle Kane said. "It's fun to pass the ball. We also have a very hard-hitting defense, with some good flow to the ball. I just like our team. I like who we have."

The Greyhounds game against Minneapolis North can be seen live in the Northland on the My 9 Sports Network. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. at Public Schools Stadium.
