“We have the potential to have a very strong offense and score goals. But ultimately, we want our stingy defense to remain the cornerstone of our program and everything that we do. We are going to try to score, and build our team that way, but we must keep in mind that we cannot lose the piece of us that has won championships, which is making sure we do a great job with pressure and defending, and doing that first!” ~J.
