On Friday night, Westlake junior linebacker Quincy Bennett will be looking to sack Oaks Christian senior quarterback Brandon Dawkins.
But years ago, they were teammates for the Channel Islands Warriors.
In photo above, Dawkins (top row left corner) was 8 years old and Bennett (second row, fourth from left) was 7 years old.
Bennett is still a Warrior. Dawkins will try to avoid getting hit by his good friend.
