I will be coachable. I will.

"We've been faced with some adversity at different times in the season, obviously not being district champs was one of those things, and this group of seniors really stepped up and provided a great deal of leadership to get us to where we are at," said Brad Drehle, Blair Oaks Football Coach.

I will sacrific for my team. I will.

"I think it motivates us by, we get to sit down and talk about it. If we think we have a pretty good chance against this team and what's going to work, that night," said Brad Richter, Blair Oaks Sr. offensive lineman.
I will outwork my opponent. I will.

"Um, Brad, Brad Richter. Yeah."

"No I don't think that's true. I think he can eat more than I can"

We have a great opportunity. Higginsville is a great football team, but so are we. A lot of people are going to tell you we can't handle them, they are better then we are, yada, yada, yada. What we want to do is come out and make a statement early in that game.

"Knowing that we could possibly go out of here winning it all, it's just something I've dreamed of since I was little."

We will play with pride. We will, we are, Blair Oaks.
