From ESPNHS :


We were so hyped going into Saturday's game against Aquinas Institute. The game was on TV and we knew we were playing a team that's not only ranked in the state but ranked nationally, so we figured they weren't going to make many mistakes. We knew it would be tough, but we thought we could do something against them if we played mistake-free football.

Unfortunately, though, we couldn't get it done [St. Joe's lost 40-20 to Aquinas]. I know I don't play defense, but we just couldn't tackle well at all. [Aquinas tailback Billy Lombardi] was running all over the place, so that's something we've got to work on. Jarron Jones is a good player, but he didn't have a dominant game. We actually felt like we got more yards going at him than when we did when we tried to go around him, so that was a pleasant surprise.

You always hate to lose, but we have to look past that one now and move on. It wasn't a league game and knowing we played the state's top team in our first game should have us prepared going forward. When we watched the film, it took us four and a half hours to go through the first half alone, so that gives you an idea of how much we can learn from this — and how bad it was at times. We just made so many mistakes and it was embarrassing for us on both sides of the ball.

Our coach [Dennis Gilbert] made me come in bright and early Sunday at 7:30 to talk and we didn't get out of practice until 3, so we're putting in work. We just sat down for about an hour and a half and he was saying how sometimes he goes hard on me so the guys know there are no favorites. Then we just talked about how bad we played and how we're really going to have to work on tackling, even if that means going hard in practice.
