Quotes From…

Head Football Coach Greg Moore:

On making the playoffs…

“We were excited to learn that we got in. We had a couple of games that didn’t go our way. It’s going to be a tough battle, but the alternative is to not have a battle at all. It’s a great reward for our kids after what they did to turn our season around after the first couple of weeks.

On having a week off to prepare…

“Everyone this time of year is banged up and bruised up. We will do our best to get some rest.”

On practice leading up to Friday’s game vs. Calvary…

“It’s been very good. I think this past Thursday was one of the best practices we’ve had. We’ve been able to focus on some fundamentals the past three or four days that we have to be good at going into the playoffs.”
