Okanagan Sun set to rise

The Okanagan Sun and Kamloops Broncos have a lot in common as they get ready to raise the curtain on another BC Football Conference season Saturday at the Apple Bowl.

Both teams feature young, untested rosters and new faces throughout the coaching staff and front office.

That commonality ends once the teams take to the field.

Head-to-head, the Sun have never lost to the Broncos, putting a perfect 23-0 record on the line Saturday.

Streaks such as those won't matter much in the opener, as both teams feel out their rosters after about a month of training camp and practice.

"The whole thing has been a work in progress. We have a ton of new faces, coaches and players. Two new systems...there's been a lot of learning," said new Sun head coach Jamie Boreham of the past month.

"Every day has been better, and we're happy in the direction we're going."

Boreham was tight-lipped when asked what his offensive philosophy will be heading into the opener. He even evaded questions as to which of his two highly-touted quarterback recruits had won the starting job.

"We have two good ones. We've been quiet as to who we are and what we are, and we are going to have an opportunity, and so will the rest of the country to see what we are on Saturday night."

As for the rest of the roster, Boreham says the depth chart has been set, but added that can change at any time.

"If you are not doing your job, you're coming off the field. It happens in practice, it happens in a game. We're here to win a football game on Saturday. we're going to put people on the field that are going to help us do that."

Kickoff Saturday is 7 p.m.
