PLEASANT GROVE'S JOSH GIBSON: "Paris changed to a Wing-T offense, like we run, a couple of years ago. They run the ball; we run the ball. It's like two boxers slugging it out in the ring. It will be a physical game against two run-oriented teams. They are extremely fast, always talented and really athletic.

"We would like for our game to be packed out. I think our opener was the only game in the past seven years that hadn't been sold out. There were seats open in the reserved section, which disappoints me because people paid for those seats but aren't coming. I thought we still had a good atmosphere, but we want a sold-out atmosphere like we've had in the past. It helps build excitement for our program and our team."
