When asked abut the game against McPherson, Logan Anguiano a Senior Linebacker replied with “We couldn’t really tackle, we weren’t blocking well, and we couldn’t really get back in coverage when we needed to. We also need to fix some defensive schemes and on offense we need to fix some blocking assignments, and we need to work on hitting the wholes a lot harder. We need to do a lot of little things to improve.”
