Albert "Butch" Jennings, V.E.S. BISHOPS COACH, said "That run that got us here, I told the boys what do you want to do. They said Coach we want to win. So I taught 'em one thing. If you're going to win, work in the now. That's what win means here, and these kids work, and they work, and they work."
Frank Rocco, L.C.A. BULLDOGS COACH, said "Our kids they allow you to coach them. And if they do what you coach them to do, we're really good. And we've got a lot of good players and coaches are really good. So it's just a lot of fun to coach these guys."
