“Good team effort. It was going to be required. I like the no blink and supportive approach of the team in all three phases. We all had moments where we didn’t get it done. But we all had moments where we uplifted the other phases. That is what team is. We did what we had to do. Guys made plays. We are appreciative of the efforts, thankful to get the win, assess it and get ready to move on to the next challenge this journey possesses.” — Coach Tomlin.

“I thought [Jaylen Samuels’] whole game was awesome. He caught the ball, he ran. The way that he stepped up was special and James Washington as well. The plays that he made were just huge today for us and big plays for us…I thought guys answered the bell today!” — Ben.
