Comments by Coach Mark Willey:

What a game, What a Season.” “ We totally dominated all phases of the game.”  

As always, it starts with the offensive line (Jalen Robinson, Aiden Woods, Bennett Altwegg, Lane Hoekman, and Kash Hargraves.)  We had two starters out and we had some kids play new spots and do a great job.”   

“We had them scouted pretty well on defense. We where able to execute, be aggressive and get the shutout.”  The Front four of 

Jaxson Cuba, Nolan Wilkins, Aiden Woods and Lane Hoekman were awesome.”  

“We also had two big INT’s in the game.  The first by Levi Evans, saved a touchdown to end the half. Then, Heath had a huge pick 6 to seal the game in the third.”
