Q: What does Coppell have to do to win Friday?
A: We just have to play our game and not worry that they’re Southlake. We need to score points and hit people–we’re a big-hitting team. We thrive on takeaways and turnovers.

Q: What do you expect Southlake’s defense to bring to the table?
A: I’m expecting them to be fast and more disciplined than most teams. They’re smaller, though, so we should be able to handle them.

Q: What is Coppell’s mindset going into Friday night?
A: We’re coming into this game excited, and I think we can damage them. If we go out and play like we’ve been playing, we’re not only going to win–we can embaress them. If we can force turnovers and frustrate their offense, we’ll be fine.
