Bay Head Coach
"I thought the kids played real real hard. We were a little more physical than I thought we'd be just because I hadn't seen us against somebody other than ourselves. So I was, we got down a bit, the kids battle back, which was important to me to see that. So I was real pleased with a lot of things we did. We got three or four running backs who I think are real capable so we gotta rotate those guys in and out and keep guys fresh. I thought our oh line did a good job last week considering we got some new starters and the guys hadn't worked together before."
The Tornadoes, 5-5 last season, now part of the 5 team 5-A district one alongside Rutherford, Arnold, Gulf Breeze and West Florida. Kickoff at T.O. Friday set for 7.
