    Some pretty good quotes from the Morgantown players and head coach.

    As Morgantown junior Preston Fox reflected on Friday night’s battle with Fort Hill inside Greenway Avenue Stadium, it didn’t take him long to describe his opponent’s playing style. “They hit hard,” he said. “They laid it on us very hard.”

    “They dominated us. They were technicians,” Morgantown coach Matt Lacy said. “They kicked us out, and they ran straight up the field at us all night.”

    “It was a dogfight. They kept knocking us down, but we had to get back up and keep fighting,” said junior Mohigan lineman Marcellus Marshall.

    (Watched the vid again).... When FH stripped the ball from the receiver, the air went out of Morgantown. This is a classic FH team. No matter whom FH plays, FH will be the more disciplined and tougher team on the field. On a given day maybe size and speed will beat them... but they will never out-hustle or out-hit them.
