2. You won region titles and reached the state quarterfinals in 2016 and 2017, your first two seasons as coach. Do you feel this year's team is back to that level? How does this team compare to those teams? "Each team played differently. We were able to accomplish the same goal each year by implementing different game plans that catered to the skill levels of our kids. This year's team has similar traits from both teams but definitely not the same skill set level. Each region championship team was very unique in their own way. This year's team in my opinion can become one of the better teams in our tenure at Mays."
3. Do you feel your team has been overlooked this season? You weren't ranked until midseason or later, and that's been like No. 8-10. South Paulding was ranked ahead of you. Was that motivation? "Not at all. South Paulding is a great program. We have a great amount of respect for their coaches and the job they are doing at South Paulding. As far as being overlooked, we have always been overlooked. Our motivation is gaining respect each season as a perennial program. Region 5-AAAAAA is very competitive. Despite all of the naysayers, we play in a playoff-caliber region. We are battle-tested throughout the regular season."
