Bulldog Head Coach Travis York
“… Weston is a kid who plays so hard and fights for us defensively. He’s the most physical player we have and he did a great job battling against a much bigger player tonight. He’s a great kid and a great student. He’s also already enlisted in the military. Great all around kid. Very proud of him.”
“… Tonight we played hard. Just had a small 3 minute stretch to start the second half that was the difference in the game. Also going 8-17 from the line was a back breaker.”
