Brandon is a killer. He's the toughest, most intense competitor I've ever coached.

We had a good day. Hopefully, we'll move on from there. I think our guys are really fired up and ready to go for every match. And now they know that they're just one match from the finals.

It doesn't get any better than to have five guys in the finals and one of them your son while your other son is also down here. We're very fortunate since things have gone very well for us. They're great kids and they've wrestled hard.

The SouthWest Suburban Conference is 10-deep. We have to be ready. There will be a lot of state medals out of the conference. It's going to be very competitive Saturday.
