I think his work in the seven months gained the respect of the coaching staff and his teammates. He showed up and just decided he was going to put in the time and effort to get the job done.
I think we had a great season. We won a third straight league title and we had a good record against a schedule that was as difficult as any we've ever had. And we played with an X across our chest. We were the big game on everyone's schedule.
Our offensive line played well all year. Evan (Marchal) and Ray (McClintock) had outstanding years.
To the kids' credit they never gave up. I was really proud of them.
We're so happy, we're so pleased we did it this way. We came into the business knowing nothing but with a company that has 10 years of experience.
