"We started off really well by scoring on our first three drives and holding them 3 and outs. The kids were focused all week and prepared very well. In the second half we didn't play with a lot urgency or emotion, which is something we need to fix. The kids compete each and every week, which is a blessing to have as a coach." stated Coach Gray.
This week Hornets play Wright who has a good young quarterback. He throws the ball well and makes good decisions. They have some speed on the edge, so we will have to be aware of what they are trying to do by formation and down and distance.
