"It felt good. I missed last year because I had to get surgery, but being back in it is nice. It's a good feeling. We've been working for a while, we just got out of two-a-days and the breakaway. We've been working on it a lot, we installed a whole new offensive system. So getting in there and doing something new is always fun," said Bubba Maschmeier, Running Back, Lathrop Malemutes.
"It was nice because I knew I had protection in front of me. The guys were blocking good up there. And it helps when you have the best receivers to throw to... A good running game... It works perfect," said Jaden Littell, Quarterback, Lathrop Malemutes.
