Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… We knew coming to Greenup Co. that we were going to get pitched to. No matter who they got we know they are going to pitch. Steve Logan does a great job with the pitching staff and Greg Logan always has his team prepared. I promise you it’s not easy to score runs on Greenup but fortunately we got it rolling in the third and fourth innings. I think this is a sign of what we could be, I love our team and love what we are capable of doing. You give Bryce Blevins a couple of runs and it’s typically over but if you give him thirteen it’s really over.”
“… We thought it would be a quick game but maybe one or two to nothing because I knew who we were throwing and usually every guy they have pounds the strike zone. I figured it would be quick but not like that.”
Lawrence Co. Senior Bryce Blevins
“ On a cold night like tonight I thought my fastball was big. I needed that one. Pitching in these conditions is tough but I battled through it and worked ahead in the count. Coming down here we knew they were a tough team and they have a good program. They are one the better teams in the 16th region. They beat Huntington already this year who we came back and beat. They also beat Paintsville who we lost to just last week. We knew it would be a challenge on the road and our mindset was focused on coming down here and getting the victory.”
“ Our coaches have said all year that we have something special here and I love this team. We are closer than any team I have ever been on. It’s like family and I knew once we got rolling it was over.”
