2. Is this the best team you've had at Parkview? Is there something about this year's team that makes you believe you can break through and win it this year, something that other teams might not have had? "It's probably the best team since I've been a head coach. We have some special players that make incredible plays. Our team chemistry last year was as good as I've ever seen, and it took our team a little longer this season to grasp that, but we turned the corner the second half of our Norcross game. It's amazing what fighting through adversity the correct way does for a team. We'd like to believe we can win it any year, but 7A football in the state of Georgia, you have to have great players and catch some breaks. What separates this team is our overall team speed. We've had some very fast kids in the past, but overall as a team, it's probably the fastest I've ever had. We are hoping that along with great preparation from our kids and coaches, we will break through this season. It's certainly not an easy task knowing that any of the eight teams left are good enough to win it all."
3. Where is your team now compared to Sept. 6, when you lost badly to Lowndes? How are you different now, or does that remain to be seen? "We are definitely playing better football, especially on offense, but we can't take anything away from Lowndes. They physically beat us that night. It's definitely a game we'd like to have back and would like to think we'd get a different result this time of the year. We had a few starters out that game, but it's still no excuse as Lowndes executed very well in all three phases of the game. I'd say we proved ourselves to be very different right now than on Sept. 6, but we have to do it again this Friday to keep it a reality."
