“One more push to enter the playoffs and advance to the championship. We all agree that is the intended outcome. Sports are difficult because you sometimes win and sometimes lose, but the guys are working hard in the gym”.

”There are some wonderful people in the group, and they go above and beyond for your team. Keep supporting them and believing in them, and I’m confident they’ll succeed,” Wood said.
