Offensively, we amassed right at 500 total yards, and on defense we held GCS to a total of 30 yards. I'm extremely proud of the effort and energy our guys played with. It all starts up front with the offensive and defensive lines, and those guys played tremendously all night. I'm proud of the way we are coming together and are hopefully trending in the upward direction.”
