FOX 11 Sports Prep Expert goes 1-on-1 with Appleton North coach Rob Salm.
DR: Here with Appleton North coach Rob Salm. His team headed to Kimberly tonight for the game of the week.Rob, two undefeated teams, I don't think anybody's too surprised about that. What does this game mean for your kids?
RS: "It gives us an opportunity to win the conference championship and that's the way we look at it. We don't want to put too much onto this game, you want the kids to focus, have fun with it, but our first goal we shoot for each year is to win the conference championship and this is the game that's going to put us in position to do that."
DR: Talk about Kimberly's offense; they put up 50 every week. Your defense doesn't allow too many points. Is this for sure the best test you're going to see?
RS: "Absolutely, they have weapons all over the place. But they only have 11 and we only have 11, so it's all fair there."
DR: In this series you got the four-game winning streak, I know you want that to be five tonight, is there anything that sticks out about those four games that has allowed you to win?
RS: "The ability to handle the pressure in that situation and make some plays and do enough to find a way to win that thing at the end. It's great to see kids and you're proud of them when they can perform under pressure and we've been able to do that, so hopefully it'll continue tonight."
