By Marla Ridenour Published: December 1, 2012

COACH DARRELL HAZELL

“Well what a great football game, it’s a tough one for us to swallow right now. That’s a great football team we played and they did an excellent job and I was proud of our football team for keep battling back after being down by 14 points, we just needed to make a couple more plays at the end on both sides of the ball, but that’s an excellent football team and the quarterback is an exceptional player and we had a hard time tackling him all day. Again, I love our guys and our locker room and they are all in there hurting and this will take a couple days to get over this one.”
