What Cheney does well: “My senior class has had three coaches, so we’ve grown pretty close as a group. Having Coach Brack come on and really try to emphasize team pride is big to us because that’s something important to us and you see that translated to our weight room and our mentality in preparing for the year.”

What has to improve: “Last year we had a couple of games where we had the game won and it the end of it things just kind of fell apart on us. We need to work on finishing, on being able to close things out.”
