Division 1 recruit, Receiver and Safety Patrick Pettis, added, "Everybody's playing great right now, our team is looking great, everybody is hard working. It's going to be hard to stop us, cause we're on a roll you know. It's a first time for a shot at the district title, and I think it's our year."
