Coach Speak:

What did Schroeder think of his team’s performance in Week 6? “Started out well. Probably had our best drive of the year, and then mistakes happen. We are all trying hard to stop making those mistakes and hopefully are learning from them. We keep working on getting better.”

MVP on offense: “Gage Koenders ran hard for us.”

MVP on defense: Schroeder said no one person stood out. “We had a tough time stopping them. They pretty much overpowered us with the inside run.”

Thoughts on Week 7: “Keep grinding. We are learning life lessons, all of us,’’ Schroeder said. “Columbia/White Salmon is a tough team. Big and fast. If we can limit our mistakes and play a full four quarters, you never know what can happen. That’s why we play the games.”
