Audible 1: " We know we have some running backs. We are kind of young on both the offensive and defensive line and hopefully up front we can open up some holes for the backs this fall." — Brandon coach John Lima

Audible 2: " For only three weeks of spring football, I thought we looked pretty good. We are all excited and this win should be a little extra motivation going into the summer." — East Bay coach Brian Thornton
