Paul Wiedlich Jr. (GAR head coach) is excited to open up the 2013 high-school football season with his Wilkes-Barre GAR Grenadiers. Week 1 his team once again travels to Chapman Lake to take on the Lakeland Chiefs-the same team that knocked them out of the District 2 AA playoffs last season. Then GAR welcomes the Dunmore Bucks football team to Wilkes-Barre in week 2.
Wiedlich has a talented sophomore running back in Anthony Maurent to run the ball. Maurent is quick and powerful and is coming off a tremendous freshman season running the 100 meter dash finals in the District 2 AA Track and Field Championships.
