Audible 1: "We've got a new defensive coordinator (Denny Randolph), and we're excited at what (defense) did — tackled well, some pass deflections from Josh Rines, and defensively up front with Levon Brookings, Josh Scarberrry and Angel Alvarez. We've got a lot of young guys that want to get after it." — Gaither coach Mark Kantor
