BLACK & GOLD QUOTES

ON THE CREW HAVING VERSATILE PLAYERS
“It’s very important to have guys like that because we
know the game can change at some point and we have
to manage the game with the players we have. We have
a couple players that can play more than one position
which is always good because if one missed a game, we
have like two or three options more to play.”

  • Pedro Santos
    ON THE CREW’S ROAD MENTALITY THIS SEASON
    “Credit should all go to the players. They’re the ones
    inside the lines. They’re the ones that have to execute
    form and have a strong mentality. I think we have a great
    group of guys that – home or away – when we take the
    field we fight, we work, we have hunger. I think on the
    road specifically, we have just been very, I think, pragmatic defensively. We really analyzed the opponent like we always do, but a little bit more how we’re going to
    take them away verses how we’re going to execute in the attack.”
