Super-intern Brandon Moore provides some comments from defensive end and team captain Kenny Kendal after Tuesday’s press conference.
â€œIâ€™m not going to put it in the back of my mind. Itâ€™s motivation for
me. Iâ€™m excited, Iâ€™m fired up to play. Iâ€™m keeping it in front to use
it, to get excited about.â€
(On hearing the news)â€œIt was a bit of a shock. It came out of nowhere.
All of our thoughts and prayers are with him.â€
(On how the team is responding)â€œWeâ€™re not gonna miss a step. Weâ€™re
practicing hard. Today we had one of our best Tuesday practices.â€
(On Hep’s attitude) â€œHeâ€™s never down, heâ€™s so upbeat. We gotta do it for
him this week. Weâ€™re gonna make him happy this weekend.â€
â€œAll of the coaches have been great.â€
â€œIâ€™m gonna pray for him tonight.â€
â€œIâ€™m just trying to lead by example. Heâ€™s gonna be watching, so weâ€™re
gonna be fired up and ready to play.â€
