Final defensive sequence to get goal-line stop…
“They didn’t come to me; I think they know the answer to that. They did cheer on those other guys and in the huddle they really encouraged them. They take so much pride in keeping the scoring down. I thought the guys were over there coaching them, going over the nuggets, the red area, things we go over on Wednesdays. We go over red Area for 15, 20 minutes and concepts. And we rep everybody in practice. So those guys got quality reps and they did a heck of a job.”
Kirby had a grin on his face shortly after when he went out to greet Drinkwitz after the game. You didn’t need to have a keen insight into the human condition to know why.
