Football on FieldEach week we’ll go around the coverage area and give you a player and/or coach quotes following the games. Here are newspaper quotes from Week #2 on Friday, September 4.

North Marion (Citra) senior quarterback Caleb Seiler, who was 9-of-15 for 120 yards, on the Colts’ 35-10 win at home against Forest (Ocala)

“Our goal was to come out and put it all out on the field and score quick. We did what we were supposed to do. We have some mistakes to clean up on offense, and we will fix those things. But it was a great performance and now we have to get ready for next week.” – Ocala Star Banner

Hawthorne football coach Cornelius Ingram following the Hornets’ 26-7 victory against Interlachen which gave Ingram his first high school coaching win

“I was giving my brother (offensive coordinator Greg Bowie) a hard time. My first coaching win and we don’t score any points on offense. But it feels great. To come back to a place where I played, the support from our administration, our fans, everything is pointing in the right direction with our program right now.” – Gainesville Sun

Gainesville coach Mark Latsko following the Hurricanes’ 31-26 upset of Class 7A No. 6 First Coast (Jacksonville) as GHS improved to 42-4 at home since 2009

“Obviously the kids love to play here on Friday nights. We knew we had to clean some things up. I was impressed with our pass rush this week as opposed to last week. That was really the key. We were able to get a good pass rush and force their quarterback into some quicker throws that we weren’t able to last week.” – Gainesville Sun

Fort White coach Demetric Jackson following the Class 1A Indians’ 26-7 loss to 5A rival Suwannee (Live Oak)

“I knew we were playing a tough, bigger team,” Fort White coach Demetric Jackson said. “There were things we could have done better offensively, but this is a good learning experience for us as we prepare for the teams that are our level.” – Gainesville Sun

Ribault (Jacksonville) coach Anthony Flynn following the Trojans’ 34-6 loss at 3A No. 1 Trinity Christian (Jacksonville) that put his team at 0-2

“They get up and go to the football, that’s why they’re a two-time defending state champion. I felt like this was a good challenge. I told them that we’re going to make the state playoffs. We’ve played two good football teams. That’s going to help us get where we need to go.” – Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville)

Oakleaf (Orange Park) coach Derek Chipoletti on junior QB Jordan Johnson, who threw for 274 yards and five touchdowns as the Knights moved to 2-0 with a 44-7 win over Orange Park

“JJ is playing like a third-year starter. Getting live reps and facing live bullets for two years has helped.” – Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville)

DeLand quarterback Quinn Dawson who threw for 315 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 37 yards and three more, following the Bulldogs’ 44-17 win against Seabreeze (Daytona Beach)

“Stat-wise this may be my best game, but it’s not my best game. There’s always room for improvement. I just thank God that I was able to come out here and do what I did.” – The Daytona Beach News-Journal

Leesburg coach Doug Allison on sophomore quarterback Wyatt Rector (170 yards rushing & 162 passing; 4 TD’s) following the Yellow Jackets first win of the season against Eustis

“He really did a good job running the offense and he’s pretty poised for a sophomore. We’re really working on continuing to improve and as we got further into the game, we were able to get some of our depth into the game and get them some quality game action.” – Daily Commercial (Leesburg)
