We didn't see our guys quit, which is a good sign, but we have to take advantage of opportunities better than we did today. We've got a tough game Friday against Glenbrook North, so we'll see if our kids bounce back.
They stopped blitzing which had hurt us all night. They helped us on that final drive.
The field goal was probably the biggest play for Tyler. This was two high-caliber, top-25 teams. I love tough openers.
I expect their defense will be better this fall also.
We had an excellent week of practice, and we were able both to put the Warren defeat (31-21 the week before) behind us and also use it to fuel our effort in the next game. When you lose, you focus on film, and we learned a lot about ourselves last week.
I think that was the biggest play of the game for us. It gave Tyler and the offense a lot of renewed confidence.
