Anthony Wells on the Coyotes:
"Central Valley is coming off a very disappointing loss to one of the top rated teams in the league. They are going to be looking to bounce back against us."

"The Hawks defense has been developing a rep around the league as one of the toughest to score against. We now must parlay this same level of intensity to our offensive group."

MILESTONES: Third win in the Af2.

"Stockton matches up very well with the Hawks as evidenced by our second game. Although the Hawks won 41-40 it took some heroics by our defense to assure the win. The Hawks will need to be mentally prepared, as well as in great physical shape, to defeat Stockton on their home turf".

This is a game where the pass rush of the Hawks will be legitimized. John Fields of the Hawks ranks 6th in the league in tackles for a loss, however QB Scott Rislov of the Coyotes ranks 2nd in total offensive TD's and WR LaMonte Jones is 4th in scoring. Fields and Ufuoma Pela (No. 1 in fumble recoveries) will enlist the help of DS Milton Myers - twice US Army Ironman of the Game; Toure' Butler - Defensive Player of the Game against Stockton and Ruschard Dodd-Masters to contain the potent Coyotes offense.
