Our defense played outstanding. Comfort was good and had some athletes but our guys were coachable and played well as a unit. Luke Friesenhahn played his best game of the year. Offensively we have so many weapons. The line keeps blocking great and any of our skilled kids have the chance to score every time they touch the ball. Hondo this week. We Are Ready!
