‘No one likes losing, but I’m happy with where we are as a team.” commented Coach Crawford.
“We are young with a lot to learn about the game, but we are getting better every time we step on the field. I don’t care about the scoreboard. I only care that we are better today than we were yesterday. If you continue to improve, the wins will come. I just appreciate the support I’ve gotten from all the players and parents already this season. All the hard work and sweat will pay off by the season’s end!”
