Head Coach Seth Sitzman had this to say about his team. 'To God be the Glory for this incredible season. We found ourselves at an all time low losing two games in a row, and having multiple injuries. However, it was the best thing that could have happened to us. We went to work and adjusted our practice plan to work for us. I'm so proud of these guys and the trust they have put into this season and myself. This group of guys were something special as they worked together and became a family and held themselves accountable for all failures and successes. Its fun to be a part of the growth of this school and program. Thank you to all the fans, businesses, students, and supporters that helped us win this State Championship.”
