I can’t put it into words how much fun this season has been with this team. We came into the game wanting to play well and build some confidence heading into the post-season. I am proud of how each player played and contributed tonight.

Winning my 100th game here at Hartselle is humbling. It is nice to especially get this milestone win on senior night with these players.
