I am sure for neutral fans Friday night was an exciting game, but for us it reinforced our need to maintain consistent passion without becoming emotional. We will continue to work with our players on developing resilience so we don’t need halftime to overcome adversity. We are also encouraged by the progress we showed in finishing the little things - no dropped passes, better tackling, more downfield blocks, and other signs we are paying better attention to details.
This week is homecoming against St. Helens HS. There will be a lot of opportunities for distraction. Help us remain focused on the real task at hand - playing our best game of the season.
