Thankful to our school system for making a great decision to push the season back for the betterment of our young people, for our coaches, for the community, for their families. But at the end of the day, I’m also very happy at the fact that we’ll get a chance to play. Get a chance to play a region schedule, get a chance to play a region championship and move on to play for a state championship, so I’m elated about it.”
