Bright coach Paul Harrison will play his 350th senior game when the Mountain Men host North Wangaratta on Saturday.
Harrison took the reins at Bright this season after a decorated career of more than 300 matches at a host of Melbourne clubs, including South Morang, Whittlesea, Bundoora and West Preston-Lakeside.
"I played 90 per cent of my footy in Melbourne. Obviously we didn't play last year, so I would have only played about 25 at Bright," Harrison said.
"It will be nice if we can get over line or there might be a spray for the boys or myself (laughs).
"We played them earlier in the year and had a pretty good win, but in saying that you've got to respect every team every week because there hasn't been as many big margins as previous seasons."

Bright's quest to reach consecutive Ovens and King deciders is well and truly alive, but it can ill-afford another slip up to a side outside the finals race.
The Mountain Men responded from a shock loss to Moyhu in the first round after the restart with a solid display against King Valley last time out and will start favourites against the Hawks on the weekend.
Nick Lebish and Luke Simpson will return and Jack Fraser is also available.
The undefeated Milawa play host to Greta, nearest rivals Bonnie Doon take on Goorambat, the in-form Tarrawingee faces another top-six fancy in Benalla All Blacks, while Whorouly could be in sixth spot at the end of the round it can overcome Moyhu at home.
