COACH'S COMMENTS

“... We are staying focused on one game at a time. A recipe for disaster this time of the year is looking too far ahead. We’ve talked about just “winning the day”. 1 game winning streaks is all we are looking for.”

“... Our boys seem to be really focused with a lot of energy so hopefully that reflects in our play on the field.”
