Sophomore quarterback makes history in varsity debut

Tyler Bruggman ’13 did more than lead the Broncos to a 30-13 season opener Aug. 27.

Bruggman went 19 for 41 in Friday’s victory over Deer Valley, throwing for three touchdowns and an interception as he made his first varsity start for the Broncos.

But the major story of Bruggman’s night was his passing yards, 317.

Brophy’s new offense on display as Broncos best Deer Valley

In an interview with The Roundup before the start of the 2010 football season, Brophy offensive coordinator Mr. Bill Kalkman said the team would be relying more on its passing game heading into a new season.

That offense was on full display Friday, Aug. 27 as Brophy unleashed its passing attack en route to a 30-13 victory over Deer Valley.

In years past Brophy has been a run heavy team. In this game, Kevin Molloy ’11, the team’s starting running back, carried the ball just five times while three different Brophy receivers had 85 or more receiving yards.

Football team gearing up for new season with same old mindset

The 2009 football season ended early for Brophy as the Broncos fell to the Mesa Jackrabbits 13-3 on Nov. 21, 2009 in the second round of the 5A-I State Tournament.

When the season came to a close, team leaders like Peter Kelly ’10, Max Leonesio ’10, Alex Garoutte ’10, Adan Nunez ’10, and Tommy Woodward ’10 had played their final game as a Bronco.

“We did lose many key seniors from last year’s team, but many young, talented players have stepped up to fill those spots,” said running back Kevin Molloy ’11 in an e-mail to Roundup reporters, “We are approaching this year the same way that Brophy football always has: we work hard, we play as a unit, and we never give up, which will lead to many wins down the road.”

‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’ Movie Review: Oozing with originality, ‘Scott Pilgrim’ earns +5000 points

Within the first minute, “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” proves it won’t be like any other movie.

The Universal logo appears, but pixilated, and a retro NES version of the theme starts to play.

This was the best way to introduce this alternate universe, where video-game logic reigns supreme, and the characters who inhabit it settle their differences by breaking into duels. The loser gets turned into a pile of coins.

‘The Expendables’ Movie Review: ‘Expendables’ is a rousing tribute to the action genre

If an explosion inside an explosion inside another explosion could have a son with knives and guns, their offspring would be known as “The Expendables.”

“The Expendables”-a film directed, written and starring the action star from back in the day, Sylvester Stallone-serves as a tribute to the machismo, testosterone-filled action movies of yesterday and today.

Stallone has accomplished this feat by bringing in the recognizable faces of action: Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and adding to his tribute to action stars are Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger who surprise fans with cameos.
