Pre Game: I go through every game day the same with getting sonic or subway then going to the school for meetings while drinking a Gatorade the watch the DLine video of the week. I will then put my headphones on and talk as little as possible to anyone while on the bus, doing individual warm ups, and our field walk. Then I pray with the team and do more walk through. Then get dressed, snap, D Line warm ups, then we do 1s v2s to get our fits correct then listen to a pre game speech.
Rival game: I would say SMN because we got two players from them and they wouldn’t allow our wide out to play because of transfer rules
