What They're Saying

"They're certainly peaking at the right time. They are a scary team. Jerome Hunter (6-3, 180) is a very, very good receiver. Brandon Benac (5-7, 180) is really, really good as a slot receiver and running back. He's one of the more electric skill players in the league. Up front, they are very big and physical. They've got their backs to the wall; they're 4-3 and they've beaten Cadillac and pushed TC Central." — TC West coach Tim Wooer.
