Gritty players key for Rifle, Pueblo East in 3A title game

Rifle High School is heading to the steel city of Colorado to try to steal a Class 3A state football title.
Saturday’s championship game is indeed a tale of two blue-collar towns with physical, tough, hard-nosed football players.
Fourth-seeded Pueblo East (10-3) plays No. 6 Rifle (12-1) at Pueblo’s Dutch Clark Stadium at 1 p.m.
The steel industry isn’t what it used to be in Pueblo, but the tradition of tough football teams is as sturdy as rebar.
