 Dave Leitao - “But these guys have worked their tails off ever since then and that's when I thought we could get better. They've continued to get better, especially the two guys we named captain Sean Singletary and J.R. Reynolds. They've given to the point where it hurts them.

 Dave Leitao - “We won't know until practice time Friday or later what his status will be. I haven't had an assessment.”
 Dave Leitao - “I'm sure over the next few days, like any coach whose season comes to an end, you get reflective.
