Quotable: "This has definitely been my favorite football season. It was a little difficult at first (at quarterback) trying to remember the plays and being a leader, but coach (JJ) Mast has helped me out with the mechanics. I have a lot of guys around me who are great athletes and they make me look good."

"We've lost to Hosanna Christian the last three years, so hopefully we can get the win this time. We'll try to pound the ball and keep them on their heels."
