Audible 1: “I’m proud of my guys. They stayed in it all the way and never gave up. I’m really proud of them. We laid a good foundation in the spring that we can build on in the fall.” — First-year Gibbs coach Jon Thompson

Audible 2: “We’re running this high-tempo offense and one of the things I wanted the guys to see is that it’s not just the offense that needs to be in shape. The defensive guys are going to be back on the field quickly. We got a little gassed in the beginning. But that’s spring.” — Jesuit coach Matt Thompson
