Head Coach Tim Tyrrell, the head coach of the Knights joined the Sam Bourquin Show Tuesday to talk about their team and what they need to do to clean up some mistakes as they prepare for Lakewood St. Edward's.
"I think our kids were ready for McKinley," Tyrrell said. "We made too many mental mistakes with the offsides and things."
Defending Division I State Champions St. Edwards comes up next for Hoban and he knows Tom Lombardo's team won't beat themselves.
"They play as a team," Coach Tyrrell said. "They're constantly running to the football on defense and they take what the defense gives them on offense."
