Commentary by TVS Coach Shondelmyer on the Dixie game:

“We were concerned with the weather. The team is thin this year with 27 players and we knew that fatigue would be a factor. We had problems with cramping. And you could tell first half early on our kids played and we were right in the game. We had a 7-0 lead and the potential to go up 14 -0. We couldn’t connect on a pass and it really snowballed after that. The next thing we know we are down 14-7 going into the half. At one point in time we only had one starter in the offensive backfield and that was Miles McCollum.”

“Fatigue really began to set in with kids going both ways and playing special teams. Dixie did a nice job and came away with the victory. We talked to kids after the game about the amount of effort it takes to be a small team and to go hard at practice and be successful on Friday nights. I think the kids are looking forward to going out and trying to redeem themselves this week.”

Next Coach was asked to speak about players performances, “Miles McCollum has done a good job so far, he has done well with the option. We need to work on passing, now he does have a strong arm. We just need more faith and trust in our offensive line. So far I have been happy with him, we just need to protect the ball and not turn it over. We have a good supporting cast with running backs Steve Balthis, Skylar Reckers, and fullbacks Tyler Leach, Grant Kreitzer in the backfield.”

“Early on I thought the defense did OK. I thought we got pressure on the quarterback and took away their spread option. And in the second half we just weren’t as fresh as we would have liked. We just have to do a better job in the second half. We threw the first punch, but we just didn’t counter very well. Once we do take a shot, we have to respond to it. Colin VanKirk was the leading tackler.“
