“It’s not just about the points, it is what we saw schematically from the Shadyside game film that we needed to clean up and we definitely improved on those. That’s where we are going to hang our hat tonight. We are just going to move forward week to week. We are going to continue to improve baby step by baby step, until we reach our ultimate goal as the ultimate form of ourselves,” East Hardy Football coach Devon Orndorff remarked.
“I think our flow tonight came from the loss we had last week. You’re never happy with a loss, but it does humble you and help set your perspectives. I think we were humbled and we were hungry again. When this team is a hungry team and we’re not happy where we are at and we strive for progress, then we are real dangerous. This is what we have talked about, not just Christian [Dove], but all those seniors have been on point all week with their leadership and in the drills during practice. It has been real crisp and you can tell that they want to get better and tonight it showed.”
