We made a run in the 4th quarter, which showed heart and character by our players. Now we have to prepare for Rockwood, who is the toughest team on our schedule.

Coach’s Corner with Coach Bill Chattin

Coach Chattin says, “I thought we played extremely well under some unfortunate circumstances.  Due to weather issues, we had not gotten to practice all week and one of our starters was stuck in Michigan due to weather issues and flights being grounded.  We made a run in the 4th quarter, which showed heart and character by our players.  Now we have to prepare for Rockwood, who is the toughest team on our schedule.”
