“It really means a lot and I know it means a lot to these guys. It’s just a great experience to get out here and have with these guys,” said Ogallala football player Alex Patrick.
“It’s pretty exciting,” said North Platte football player Dalton Caley. “It’s kind of my last hurrah, so it’s something I have been looking forward to for a while. I’m a competitive person, so I like to play to win.”
“It’s definitely competitive, there’s already been some smack talk between the teams. It’s going to be competitive, but it’s just really fun being out here and playing with a lot of guys,” said St. Pat’s football player Charles Aufdenkamp.
The volleyball game will be held 4 p.m. MDT at WNCC Cougar Palace, and the football game will be 7 p.m. MDT at Bearcat Stadium.
