Coach quote: “I knew they were going to go for it on fourth down, they had already done it several times in the game,” said Glenwood coach Jason Gibson. “We had used up all our timeouts and I felt that if we could make a play we had a chance to win it and our defense made a play.”
“When we went down by 13, I told the team we were going to go down and score and then get the ball back and that’s what we did.”
Player quote: “We were all arguing about who should get the ball and the coach called the Whip play and I really had weapons all around and just had to get the ball in the hands of our receivers because we have six guys that can go get the ball.” — Brandon Moseley.
