“I thought we were going to beat them,” quarterback Jordan Bailey said. “They’re a good team, but they’re not what everybody said they were. We made too many minor mistakes.”
“I feel that we should have won,” offensive lineman Emmill Romeo said. “We had a lot of turnovers, but we had a lot of injuries too and if we had our star quarterback, I think we should have won. The only way is up [to the] state championship.”
