Here’s a roundup of reflections from the game:

“I think it was great that we got to get out here to play and compete,” principal Dr. John Burdett said. We’ve been waiting for this for a long time, ” said principal Dr. John Burdett. “I’m proud of the way we battled back, we went down a little bit early, but the boys fought and didn’t quit. We worked for each other and that’s what team is all about and that’s what being prosper proud is all about. ”

“At the beginning we didn’t know if we were going to be able to play this season,” Cameron Harpole said. “But fortunately things came out. Unfortunately we have to wear these masks but we have to do anything we can to play, I mean nothing’s better than this.”

“It wasn’t as expected, we expected a little bit cleaner of a game. But we came out with the win and that’s all that matters. We’ll go in on Monday and fix everything that we need to,” Jackson Berry said. “Personally, I had good plays, I had bad plays, so I just have got to make it more of a good play game. I’ll fix that on Monday and come back better next week.”

“Defensively we had a great game, we had a good game scheme coming into the game” said Ryan Medeiros. “They (Prestonwood) changed it up a little bit but we came back, our coaches did a great job and we countered it.”

“I feel like the best part of our game was that we started slow but after that we were able to pick it back up and get the win.” said Steven Richardson.

“I think there’s a lot of things that we need to clean up,” head coach Brandon Schmidt said. “I think that we really struggled to get into a consistent rhythm especially offensively. Defensively we gave up too many big plays, but at the end of the day we’re one and zero.”
