It really put a lot of pressure on him. He signed early so that he could relax and have fun this season. When he's on, he's as good anyone out there and he stepped up today for us.

We cannot commit errors if we are going to win. With this being a one game situation, anything can happen. On any given day, we're as good as any team out there. We need to make sure that we are playing our best.

Football is so different than wrestling. You don't play every play. You're on the sidelines for stretches of time. And when you're in the game, sometimes you're not involved in the tackle at all. I enjoy both sports. But there's no rest when you're out on the wrestling mat.

They have solid pitching throwing in the 70s and they are a good defensive team that doesn't commit many errors. They can hit the ball well and make good decisions on the bases. They are a sound baseball team.

I started Bridges High School 10 years ago, and Judy, if she wasn't working hard, it never would have happened. This is pretty difficult for me. I had utmost respect for Judy over the years.
