Coach Dave Bailey's quote: "I think he showed that he is probably underrated in our area, especially for the way he played in the state playoffs last year, and the way he played against Johnstown last year. He usually takes the top guy on the other team on defense. He also works harder on defense than anyone else I have, and that makes my coaching easier. He is certainly the leader of our team."
