We are happy with how the team finished the game and kept working when the game was out of reach. Friday night showed the importance of mental resilience. We cannot question our team’s physical effort in the game, but we did not handle adversity well and our mental focus caused some small, but costly mistakes. As we say, “Small things are big things,” and will use the lessons from last week to focus and improve this week.
A huge positive from the game was the level support we saw from the Wilson community and the energy of our fans….looking forward to seeing more of that in the future and giving those fans a win to cheer for.
This week we play our only PPS opponent - the Cleveland Warriors - who are coming off a big win over Franklin. Like many of our opponents they are bigger than us up front. They play a physical brand of football. Football weather is also returning with rain and slightly cooler temperatures.
