Coach Blount on slowing the Marble Falls offense, whether Nail or 6'5" senior Andrew Stripling (injured the first two games) starts at QB: "We've got to prepare for both. The guy they've got now, he's doing a great job. Left handed quarterback, so there will be a lot of change with that if Stripling does play. But we're preparing for both. They've got some good receivers as well, and a good running-back, so we've just got to be prepared for everything."

Coach Miller on RB Cade Phelps and slowing Blanco's Slot-T offense:
"Number one, he's extremely fast," Miller said. "He was a state 100 kid last year, so he's definitely got the speed on his side, and like any Slot-T, they're just so disciplined, and they do a great job of putting kids in position to be successful. We just got done playing a Slot-T, so it's really the same offense we're going to see two weeks in a row. So I think our kids are up the challenge to see another Slot-T team, and really stop those backs."
