Max Whetstone on his team

What Clearwater does well: “I don’t think we have any of those standout superstars that we’ve had in the past, but we’re just one big, solid unit. We’re all brothers and play as one, so I think that gives us the determination that we need.”

What has to improve: “We have a pretty solid running game, so if we can get a good balance with our passing attack then I think we’ll be good. Our quarterback is really good and if he plays with confidence, then we all know he can make the plays and be the guy.”
