“Great team win in all three phases of the game. The atmosphere was simply electric. Win, lose or draw, our players are aware that what they have accomplished simply by coming together from all walks of life and uniting as a brotherhood is extremely harder than the opposite. They’ve learned to love and respect each other. They know in their experience in these moments will serve them in life 10, 20, 30 years from now. I am so grateful they all chose to get outside their comfort zone, do hard things and live an uncommon life that is set apart. We/re looking to finish region lay strong. We.re on to BGA.” Trent Dilfer, head coach.
