Best quote from Blake Gillikin's 2022 season:

"There's no quit in this team, that's kind of the identity of us, this organization. Turning it around like we have the last three weeks has been really big… You always go through growing pains when you change a coach that's been here for 15, 16 years and I think we're starting to show the kind of team we can be next year."
