#60 Garrett Hickman, junior, right guard on the offensive line

“We are preparing by watching a lot of film of Columbus East, but we keep our practices the same because the way we have practiced has worked out well so far!”


#20 Chris Bomba, junior, wide receiver 

“I’m looking forward to being out on our own field for the last time of the year, no matter the outcome. I’m also looking forward to us taking care of business and heading to the dome.”


#7 Phillip King, junior, cornerback

“We are preparing for semi-state just like we have every other week. We do the same things every practice.”


#5 Kristian Pechac, junior, running back

“It’s a lot more of a mental challenge than physical challenge, so we’ve started to slowed down our practice hours and reps and picked it up in the film room.”


#6 Luke Jager, senior, slot wide receiver/return punter

“I’m mostly looking forward to going out on Friday and working together as a team to get the win. We have been working for this all year and we aren’t done yet!”
