Audible I: "I asked our team to play hard the entire game and that's what they did. They never gave up, they stuck together and we got edged out by three. I can handle that." — Pinellas Park coach Kenny Crawford

Audible II: "I would've expected a 3-0 game. We had a few guys missing on defense so we had to move some people around. But Kenny always has a good ball club. The last three years we've played them (in the spring) have been tough ball games. It just so happens that we got the head nod in this one." — Paschal
