Audible 1: "We were thrilled with how everything went, especially in the first half. The great thing about the offense is that they made some plays on their own. The receivers also made some big catches." — CCC coach John Davis

Audible 2: "Our defense was good in that they created a lot of turnovers and takeaways. We've got a lot of improving to do and some conditioning. We're still pretty young, though, on defense, after losing our entire defense from last year." — Davis

Audible 3: "We are happy we played this game, because we didn't want to just play an average opponent. We wanted to play a good one." — Immokalee coach Rich Dombroski
