Quote: “It’s huge this year for our senior players to come through with great leadership. They’ve been taught by upperclassman in the past in how to practice and how to lead. They need to pass that on to the underclassmen. Even some of our sophomores are going to have to lead. When 75 percent of your team is ninth grade and 10th grade, leadership is a premium.” – Eagleville coach Steve Carson
