Garfield QB Darius Hoisten will get the start on Thursday night during the season opener at Hoban, according to Garfield coach Bob Sax.
"He is our returning starter and has shown a lot of improvement from his sophomore year," Sax said. "Deon Lewis is also doing a great job and could see some time as well. I have been impressed with both of them so far this year. I feel like they both have competed well and understand what we want to do on offense."
This season marks the eighth consecutive year in which Garfield has opened against Hoban.
"Hoban is always a strong team," Sax said. "They have depth at all of the positions and an excellent kicking game. This year is not different."
