Coach Bender on Moritz
"Andrew is a guy who is going to have to play some. He's got all the knowledge and all of the experience. We need to have somebody that can come in and spell Senque and Andrew will get that opportunity. We will not hesitate to use him, regardless of the game situation. He's a good example of a kid who has worked awfully hard, not just to be a practice player but someone who has prepared to play some minutes. We were able to give Andrew a scholarship. You like to reward walk-on players for the hard work and sacrifice they make over the years. With Andrew coming from Franklin High School and the success he had in high school, obviously he's the kind of kid you want involved with your program."
