A positive comment about another Ohio Valley football coach/program: "The Ohio Valley is a focal point of football talent in the state of Ohio. It is amazing how much talent comes out of this conference each year. This year I believe the Valley is as tough as it has ever been. Each team will have tough young men, and they will all be very well coached. In order for us to compete, we will have to bring or `A` game."
