It's been a dream season that I won't ever forget, and I hope my guys hold their heads high whenever someone mentions this season. Congrats to Ubly. Coach Sweeney is a class act, and so is his staff and players. I wish them well the rest of the playoffs and I hope I can watch them over Thanksgiv-ing at Ford Field. Thanks to all the parents, fans and my staff for this year. It has been great."
