KINDA NERVOUS BUT I THINK THAT IS KINDA NORMAL. BUT WE HAD A GOOD RUN IN THE STATE TOURNAMENT AND IF WE CAN JUST KEEP THAT GOING AND JUST PLAY WELL WE CAN JUST BEAT ANY TEAM."
KYLE "YOU KNOW THIS TEAM HAS BEEN TOGETHER FOR A FEW WEEKS NOW AND WE WERE REALLY HAPPY WITH THE WAY THEY BONDED AND JELLED AND CAME TOGETHER AS A TEAM. THEY SEEMED TO DO IT RIGHT AWAY. WHICH YOU KNOW IS PRETTY TOUGH WHEN ALL THE PLAYERS ARE PLAYING FOR DIFFERENT TEAMS THROUGHOUT THE REGULAR SEASON, BUT THEY REALLY PLAY WELL TOGETHER. YOU KNOW WE ARE A VERY ATHLETIC TEAM. WE ARE A FAST TEAM SO WE HAVE ALOT OF WEAPONS. THE TOURNAMENT WILL HAVE SEVEN STATES COMPETE FOR ONE SPOT TO SEE WHO WILL BE GOING TO WILLIAMSPORT, PENNSYLVANIA FOR THE LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES..... A DREAM THESE KIDS HAVE BEEN CHASING FOR SOME TIME.
SAM "OH WE ARE SO HAPPY. ITS PRETTY MUCH A DREAM COME TRUE FOR ALOT OF US. BECAUSE SINCE I HAVE BEEN A KID. I HAVE BEEN LIKE HOPING THAT I CAN GET HERE AND ITS BEEN REALLY FUN." CANYON LAKE HAS A FIRST ROUND BYE AND WILL PLAY THE WINNER OF NEBRASKA AND MINNESOTA.... BUT TO THESE KIDS IT DOESNT MATTER WHO THEY ARE PLAYING..... AS LONG AS THEY PLAY LIKE THEY KNOW THEY CAN THEY FEEL LIKE THEY CAN TAKE ANYBODY.
"WE DONT REALLY CARE BECAUSE LIKE OUR COACHES ALWAYS TELL US IT DOESN'T MATTER WHO IS PITCHING OR ANYTHING WE ARE JUST LIKE HERE TO PLAY AND WIN." "I JUST THINK WE THINK WE CAN WIN LIKE EVERY GAME AND DO THE BEST WE CAN. I DONT KNOW BUT WE JUST LIKE FEEL REALLY GOOD. AND WE TRY OUR BEST AND IT WORKS ALOT."
