Quotable

“Roy has worked very hard to return from a torn ACL, [also] a dislocated shoulder that kept him out of football and wrestling last year,” Decatur football coach Levi Suiaunoa said. “His hard work and perseverance have not only got him back on the field but [are] a true example of ‘Gator Grit.’ He led the offensive line to over 400 yards of total offense and four touchdowns, as well as a sack and two fumble recoveries on defense, in the win against Mount Rainier High School.”
