"We just needed to get the offense back on track, that was a big thing, been down the past 2 weeks and getting the offense going was a big thing for us cause we know we have good competition coming forward.”
“He gets confidence and you get more comfortable with the game speed, it’s hard to simulate those things through the summer," said Memorial head coach, John Hurley. "So as you go thru and get used to your reads- it’s a learning curve, there’s definitely a learning curve to it and I think he’s done a nice job with it.”
