What Tuscola is saying: "The closest thing we've seen to what Lena is going to try to do is Athens last week in the semifinal. They come out of the double-wing set. ... The different styles of football from that corner of the state versus where we're at is pretty contrasting. Likewise, I'm sure they've seen some teams that want to spread it out. I don't know if they maybe have seen a team that has the balance that we have." — coach Andy Romine

What Lena-Winslow is saying: "We're not going to have any success if we (throw frequently). We have to be a ball-control, able-to-run-the-football team in order to have success. Obviously, Tuscola poses some huge problems within that. I guess that's our job to try and figure out not only how we can run the football, but also mix in play-action pass as well." — coach Ric Arand

What Gibson-City-Melvin-Sibley is saying: "Definitely the best team we've seen on film. Their speed, their weapons, they're more dimensional than any team we've seen as far as the offensive side. ... And then on the defensive side, they just swarm to the ball. Their a big team with a lot of speed, I know they're well-coached, they have the tradition." — coach Mike Allen

What Maroa-Forsyth is saying: "Our kids are here five days a week and 50 weeks a year. So it is a full-time job for some of them, for most of them. Because of that, we've been able to have a level of success we've been able to maintain rather than hoping a good class comes through every now and again. That's been huge for us." — coach Josh Jostes
