Lawrence Co. Head Coach Alan Short
“… Obviously, very happy for our team victory last night. I don’t think you could have scripted it any better for our Seniors. Each player who was honored before last night is very special to our football program and will be missed. Fortunately for us, we aren’t finished and will cherish getting to play the game each time out.”
“… As coaches, we get to watch each of these guys grow over the course of their career, not just as football players but also as people. This group has been a blessing to coach over the last four years.”
“… Offensively very pleased that we didn’t put the ball on the ground, which has slowed us down the last several weeks. I felt that our backs ran hard and we’re not brought down on first contact and our offensive line controlled the line of scrimmage.”
“… Defensively we knew that Floyd Central would try to control the ball and work clock. Early on they had some success with this, however, I believe our depth wore them down as the game went on. Cody Crum got us going with a couple big hits, and then I felt we were able to take over the game. “
“…Pleased to be where we are at this point in the season. We will enjoy last night today, and turn our focus to a huge matchup with Raceland tomorrow.”
