COACH JOSH GIBSON COMMENTS: "The defense played lights out. Our defense just keeps playing better and better.

"Cade (Martin) is an unbelievable punter and he is a great athlete. He hit a home run this past year in baseball. He can play center, tight end, defensive line and can punt. Cade can throw a football too. What he does in our kicking game in flipping the field is huge. He is a weapon."
