Players range from every corner in the valley, there are players from Joshua Springs, Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City, Palm Desert, La Quinta, Desert Mirage, Shadow Hills, and Indio.” said Angel Chavez, Offensive Guard # 72. Erich Pili, defensive tackle said that the team did exponentially well and had a few good plays which led the team to score 17 points. “Despite our loss I thought the defense did really well, but there is always room for improvement,” he said.
