"A lot of hard work, the kids are really getting after it. And you've got to cut down on some mental mistakes, but other than that it's been a pretty good season so far. (Question) What's impressed you most about this team so far? How hard we're playing in the games. We got a little better in the weight room, we're a little better in shape. And we're playing hard during the games."
As for taking on the Sharks, who are 2-3, well that team's record won't cause the Tigers to take St. Joe lightly. Coach Gardner will make sure of that.
"They are fast, well-coached and they can hit. It will be our biggest challenge of the year so far. Like I said they're very quick. And they will hit you. (QUESTION) What's the message to the team this week? No turnovers and keep them in front of you."
