Quote: “We’ve got some growing to do. We bring back a good portion of our offensive and defensive lines, but all of our perimeter people are either new or haven’t seen much playing time. Hopefully our lines can carry the skill guys a little bit as we continue to get better week by week.” — Father Ryan coach Bruce Lussier.
