Quote: “There’s handful of teams that we play that are awfully talented when you look at LaVergne, Independence and Stewarts Creek. Time to grow up? We’re going to have to grow up under fire. We just have to work hard, and we’re going to have little room for error. We’ve got to be on cue every play every Friday night to be in position to win ball games.” — Columbia coach Howard Stone.
