“When teams in this league see orange and white, there is that intimidation, there is that mental factor that goes into play. Hopefully we can get rid of that stigma and put up a good fight.” – Floyd Central coach Brian Glesing

“They will control the clock, run the football and play defense. That’s a good plan. We can’t let them get into that plan.” – Columbus East coach Bob Gaddis
