FOX 11 Sports prep expert Doug Ritchay goes 1-on-1 with Bay Port coach Gary Westerman, whose team plays at Ashwaubenon on Friday in the GameTime Game of the Week.
DR: Here with Bay Port coach Gary Westerman, his team headed tonight to Ashwaubenon for the game of the week. Gary two undefeated teams meeting here, which means whoever comes out of this is leading the FRCC. Is this where you expected your kids to be?
GW: I don't know if expected, but we set high expectations for our kids, set the bar high, so we're happy to be here, our kids have earned it and it'll be a big-game atmosphere.
DR: You've been tested in recent weeks, at Notre Dame, you're on a current road trip where you have most games on the road. How much does that help you going into tonight's game?
GW: Playing on the road is tough just because it's different. We're lucky enough this year to have five home games. The four that we have on the road are in difficult situations, so we really got to try to guard against any type of a letdown and be ready to play at 7 o'clock on Friday.
DR: Ashwaubenon obviously has a great offense with balance with James Morgan and your offense is pretty good too. What's the key to stoppiing? Could maybe be your offense controlling the ball?
GW: People talk ball control but you still have to score points. I think that's the key to it. We have to limit big-play opportunities on defense. Being able to run the football, I think, is really important.
