“We’re fired up,” said senior Cristian Hernandez. “We’ve been playing together since we were 11, 12 years old. It feels amazing moving on to the third round with the same group of guys.”
To get to this point, the Falcons had to go to a third game in their first two series. Against Mission in the area round, they avoided eliminate twice after losing game 1 to the Eagles.
“It teaches us to never give up, keep going,” said senior Victor Montemayor. “It’s a new day every day. Keep working hard.”
“We’re not somebody that’s scared of a deficit,” said senior Hugo Sanchez. “We know we have the ability to come back and get big wins.”
