KEYS TO SUCCESS THIS SEASON: Details, everything matters, every rep, every play, every day matters.  Improve everyday. 

ANY EXTRA PRESSURE TO ENSURE COACH KELLIHER ENDS HIS CAREER WITH A STRONG SEASON? I wouldn’t say extra pressure but extra motivation and excitement.  He’s meant so much to this program that we all owe it to him to give our best every day and every rep.
