Audible 1: "We have a ton of eighth-graders and freshmen playing a lot, but I think we're going to be pretty good. We just have to work." — Tremaine
Audible 2: "We got a lot of things accomplished. We lost a 1,000-yard rusher, some offensive linemen and our defensive backfield, so we have some young guys stepping in there. We get them in during practice, but in the game the speed changes a bit. We are encouraged where we stand." — Shorecrest coach Phil Hayford
