Jared Mowery, Danville Linemen added " last week in warm-ups we were a little sluggish, we came out 21-0 and then we kind of took our foot off the gas, we still got the job done, . we come out a little sluggish like we tend to do but we need to fix that."
To fix the offense Danville will have to rely on freshman quarterback Kayden riley…The brother of injured starter Riley…
Keiser added " he throw the ball real well, he doesn’t have the skill set running the football like Peyton did but KJ has a heck of an arm and makes real good decisions. We don’t lose a whole lot there but we lose that running threat."
