Junior Brennan Bunner made the conversion to Southmoreland's starting quarterback in the middle of the season.

Bunner has helped the Scotties win two games in a row and a win this week over Yough could help Southmoreland earn a trip to the WPIAL Class AA playoffs.

Q: When did you take over as the Scotties' starting signal-caller?

A: It was Week 4. I was pretty stoked. We played Ford City, and we battled, and the team looked up to me. I was honored.

Q: Do you feel more comfortable leading the team now, compared to your first start?

A: Yes.

Q: What has helped you develop your comfort level?

A: Just getting more reps and getting more timing and definitely the one-on-one coaching.

Q: What do you feel you need to work on to help you improve at the quarterback position?

A: I definitely need to get stronger, and I need to work on getting out of the pocket more.

Q: What's it like to be a part of a team still fighting for the playoffs this late in the season?

A: It's pretty amazing. We're pretty stoked to play our next game.

Q: What do you do before a game?

A: I always listen to Eric Clapton before a game.

Q: When you aren't playing football, what are some of your other interests?

A: I like to hunt and fish and do other outdoor activities.

Q: Do you play any other sports?

A: I play baseball. I've pitched and played shortstop and second base.

Q: What is your favorite food?

A: Definitely seafood.

Q: What are your future plans?

A: I'd really like to go to college and pursue engineering. I like math and science.

Q: What's it like preparing this week for an important game against Yough?

A: Yough is always a big rival, so it's a big game. We're all pretty stoked about it.
