COLUMBIA -- Rock Bridge sophomore quarterback Logan Twehous is taking his first snaps of the 2012 season Friday as the Bruins kick off their season at 7 p.m. against St. Louis high school DeSmet.

Twehous is tasked with leading Rock Bridge as the team tries to improve upon a 7-4 record last season that ended in a first-round playoff loss to Rockhurst, a Kansas City school. That was the first playoff game the Bruins had played in nearly five years, according to the Columbia Tribune.

KOMU 8's Chris Gervino spoke before the game with Rock Bridge head coach A.J. Ofodile, whose team is returning nine defensive starters. The game is KOMU 8's Friday Night Fever Game of the Week and is one of 16 happening Friday.
