Pulse-Journal Quotes:

• Coach Stubbs: “It’s really a double-edged sword. I think the 10 days are good for working on the fundamentals so you don’t have to spend that time during two-a-days, but I think kids shouldn’t have to choose. They should be able to be part of extracurriculars as much as possible.”

• Wrestling Coach Jimmy Williams: "I’m excited to be here (who also will be the offensive line coach for the Hornets football team.) I’m still kind of new right now and football is going on, but one of my goals is to reinstate the youth wrestling program. Right now, kids who live here are wrestling in other programs. We need to build it back up so they can wrestle here and that will help build the high school program in the future.”

• Coach Stubbs: “It’s really become a necessity. If you’re not working on the basics in the summer, you’re going to be behind when practice starts. We make sure we work hard and get something out of it because you have to be a on a level playing field with your opponents.”
