Offense assistant coach Matt Riggins commented on the team's success, "If you get enough people working hard to do things the right way, good things happen."
Senior wide receiver Graham Thompson also commented, "Having a strong crowd and student section following us to the game and being there to support us gives us the motivation we need to play to our best potential! It's a great feeling knowing we have our community (otherwise known as the Rebel Nation) supporting us."
