Even though it was Labor Day on Monday, both Fairview and Boulder were out on the practice field knowing they could not afford to take a day off with the 53rd football meeting between the two schools coming up Friday.

Recht Field will be alive for a 6 p.m. contest pitting the rivals against each other, and host Boulder will be looking to put an end to an eight-game losing streak in the series (Fairview leads 32-20 overall) with new coach Vincent Smith at the helm.

Here's a quick look at both teams:

FAIRVIEW KNIGHTS (1-0)

Coach: Tom McCartney, 24th season (153-100 overall, 15-8 vs. Boulder).

WHEN FAIRVIEW HAS THE BALL

The Knights are going to spread the field with their exceptional group of senior wide receivers, a foursome of Quinn Sharp, David McWilliams, Tommy Wakefield and Connor Twist who combined for 27 receptions in a Week 1 win over Horizon. A different wrinkle to the Fairview offense may be the designed quarterback run as Jake Willemsen had 15 carries for 62 yards last week, as well.

Mariano Kemp missed last week recovering from a high ankle sprain, and if he is to return this week should get a number of opportunities to carry the football.

BOULDER PANTHERS (0-1)

Coach: Vincent Smith, 1st season (No record against Fairview).

WHEN BOULDER HAS THE BALL

The Panthers are going to try and roll out some new looks after last week's loss to Denver South in which they were not successful running the football but did have some key connections through the air to lead to some points.

Cole Peterson and Patrick Fletcher were the primary weapons for Boulder last week, combining for five receptions and 125 yards. Fletcher will be asked to get going in the run game, and the Panthers will need to sustain some drives to keep the FHS offense off the field as much as possible.
