Pulse-Journal Quotes:


  •     Coach Meibers on Camp Higher Ground:  “The reason we want to go to a camp like this is to allow us to have total focus and total isolation for the time that we’re out there.  Not only will we be doing lots of football stuff technique wise, scheme wise, drill wise, but we will also be able to do some good team bonding.”


  •       Coach Burnside, after the Xenia tournament:  “They showed some promise.  The juniors and seniors stepped up and played well. I was pleased with the leadership they displayed.”


  •     Coach Oster, discussing Jake Essig and Nick Braden:  “Both of them are very talented players.  They’re different types of players and they complement each other perfectly going forward.”


  •    VB Coach Elias:  “I’m very excited about it.  I see the potential and I see what great girls they are, and I’m really excited to get in there and start working with them.”


Alumni News:
