Byrum on the Wildcats: “We learned a lot of things about our ballclub [in the season opener]. We’re battling to be consistent, but if we rebound well and take care of the ball, good things happen. The kids play hard and they play together, they just have to play smart.”

Boehler on the Wildcats: “They have a lot of kids with varsity experience and they’re coming in with some confidence. That first win was a big boost for them.”

Byrum on the Vikings: “It’s a good program that’s good every year. Throughout [recent] history South Vermillion has struggled against them, and we’ll try to change that.”

Smith on the Patriots: “We got smacked around in our first game, but we improved after that. This is a team that’s going to get better each game.”

Boehler on the Patriots: “They’re just like us; they lost the majority of their scoring, but they still have good, athletic kids looking to make names from themselves.”

Smith on the Vikings: “I don’t know what to expect. They lost kids like [we did], but younger kids get to step up. They’re learning about their team just like we are.”
