Tolsia Head Coach Eric Crum
“… We finally put a full team effort together and that is what we want this late in the year. We had our best week of practice so far and you could tell tonight.”
“…Our running game out of the wishbone was very effective. John Wilson and Gavin Meadows ran hard. Tanner Copley blocked well and Devin Stull for playing his first game at center played well. Jesse Muncy is getting more comfortable at QB and you can really tell. He is commanding the offense and becoming a leader for our team.”
“… Really proud of our effort tonight our guys touch a good approach to this week. We need to finish strong next week and lock up a home playoff game in two weeks. We need to continue to practice well and improve each week.”
