Lawrence Co. Head Coach Alan Short
“… Glad to come away with a win Friday night. Floyd Central played us harder than we probably would have liked. That is a testament to Coach Hager.”
“… To go undefeated in district play is a huge accomplishment for our team. Very proud that we are in the position that we are in. Looks like we will host East Carter in round one (playoffs) at home.”
“… Thought we played well up front and our backs ran hard. Defensively we tackled a little high for our liking. We will work to get that corrected in practice this week.”
“… Huge game coming up with Raceland next Friday. Great opportunity to play a very good opponent on our home field. Friday night will be senior night for a very special senior class. Our team is excited for the challenge.”
