Creighton Sanders on his team

What Heights does well: “I think it’s confidence level that we have. No one talks about, ‘I’m going to do this, I’m going to do that.’ It’s, ‘We’ll be hard to beat because of what we do on the field.’ We pick each other up.”

What has to improve: “We need to improve on working much harder in the weight room. I’m not saying we don’t already, but that weight room helps out a lot in the playoffs. It shows stamina, how much you want to put into it. You can either get stronger or not really care about it.”
