“… We are playing really well right now and that’s the time of the year you always want to get hot. We have had some big wins the last few weeks but that means nothing now. I feel we are ready, we just need to play our game. This is like Christmas to me! I love this time of year! I think there are 4 to 6 teams that could win the region and I’m thankful I feel we are one of them. Play Ball!”
