Week 1 - Sacred Heart 42, Assumption 21 - Post Game Quotes
Head Coach Paul Gorham
On the score before the half: "That score before the half really broke the ice and got us going. If we don't score there I'm not sure if we would have had the confidence to come back in the second half."
On Evin Jones: "I thought he was a little hesitant in the first half. He's the kind of player that has to run north-south between the tackles, and if he does that he will be successful. I was very happy with his play overall."
Freshman Running Back Garry Coles
On his 68-yard TD Run "I got some great blocks up front and just hit the hole. It felt good to get off to a good start. Great to get a touchdown in my first game."
On the second half comeback and his 43-yard kick-off return to start teh half: "We came out with the attitude that the score was 0-0 so let's go. On the opening kick-off, I just wanted to make something happen and there was just huge holes out there to run, I hit it and made a play."
Junior Linebacker Chansler Davis
On the second half adjustments: "We came out of the locker room say 'Don't Give Up' and we took it to them right out of the gates. We didn't play fast paced in the first half but we definitley stepped up after halftime."
On pressuring the QB: "We knew they would have to throw the ball late in the game and we just brought the pressure. An all out rush, we brought the heat and were able to put them away at the end."
