Quote of the Week:

"We have been in preseason for about five weeks now and have been preparing. The first few were really difficult physically, so I think that prepared us well for these types of tests. We have only had a few new guys come in, so we have a good group that knows where everyone is going to move, where everyone likes to move, where Oscar [Pareja] likes us to move within the system, so I think we are set from that perspective. The new guys have adapted well and have started to adapt to the scheme and to the movements of all of our teammates. I think we are ready, and we are anxious to get the season started."
