OVER ESCANABA TOMORROW. WELCOME BACK TO “THE SPORTS ZONE.” IF YOU WANT TO REACH OUT TO US YOU CAN DO IT ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA FEED YOU CAN DO SO AT THE LOCAL 3 SPORTS ZONE ON FACEBOOK AND THE LOCAL 3 SPORTS ZN ON TWITTER. ONE TEAM WE HAVEN’T TALKED A LOT ABOUT IS THE MENOMINEE MAROONS. THEY HAVE MADE IT SO WOO — SO WE CAN’T IGNORE THEM. THEY ARE 4-1 ON THE YEAR AND CLIMBING UP OUR SPORTS ZONE RANKINGS. [PHONE RINGING]. JOINING US VIA THE MARQUETTE LINE IS JOE FROM THE MAROONS. YOU ARE COMING OFF A SHUTOUT WIN AND YOU ARE AT 4-1. HOW ARE YOU FEELING ABOUT YOUR SUCCESS SO FAR? OUR KIDS HAVE REALLY OWNED THE EFFORT AND ATTITUDE PIECE OF THE STANDARDS HERE IN MENOMINEE. THEY HAVE BEEN VERY COACHABLE AND ALL OF THE WORK IN THE OFF SEASON IS PAYING OFF RIGHT NOW. WE HAD A GREAT OFF SEASON COMMITMENT. KIDS HAVE COME IN AND DONE THINGS WELL. WE WON FOUR AND LOST ONE. WE ARE JUST COMING OFF THE WIN AND WE ARE PLAYING WELL AT A NEUTRAL SITE. WE ARE PLEASED AS COACHES. THEY HAVE ANOTHER TOUGH ONE COMING UP TOMORROW AGAINST ESCANABA. TALK ABOUT THE MATCH UP. YEAH, ESCANABA IS DOING VERY WELL. DAVE IS A GREAT COACH THERE. THEY ARE 4-1 AS WELL AND THEY HAVE A LOT OF WEAPONS. THEY HAVE A LOT OF KIDS THEY CAN GO INTO. YOU CAN’T JUST FOCUS ON ONE GUY. THEY HAVE FOUR OR FIVE GUYS THAT CAN BEAT YOU. THEY HAVE TO BE DISCIPLINED ON DEFENSE AND MAKE SURE WE ARE READING OUR KEYS AND MAKING SURE WE ARE TACKLING THE GUYS IN SPACE. THEY HAVE GUYS THAT CAN RUN THE BALL. WE WILL NEED TO TACKLE THEM. AND FINALLY, FINISH THIS SENTENCE FOR ME. FOR THE MAROONS TO LEAVE THE FIELD WITH A VICTORY THEY WILL HAVE TO — WE PUT OUR GAME PLAN IN ON MONDAYS. WE PUT THAT IN AND THAT’S THE GAME PLAN. IT CONSISTS OF CAN’T TURN THE BALL OVER. WE — WE NEED TO FINISH DRIVES IN THE RED ZONE AND WE NEED TO BE PHYSICAL. IT WILL BE A PHYSICAL GAME BECAUSE IT MEANS A LOT TO THE CONFERENCE. IT IS A RIVALRY GAME. THERE IS A LOT RIDING ON IT AT HOME. YOU KNOW, WE ARE ANTICIPATING A GOOD CROWD AND A REALLY GOOD GAME. THAT WAS JOE NOAH OF THE MENOMINEE MAROONS. WE JUST SAW A HANDFUL OF MANY GOOD GAMES ON THIS WEEK’S SLATE. ANOTHER MATCH UP THAT BOTH TEAMS MIRROR EACH OTHER. I EXPECT THAT TO BE CLOSE. WHEN WE RETURN WE HAVE OUR TOP THREE ON THREE. WE WILL TAKE A LOOK AT THE NEWEST RANKINGS. THAT’S LATER IN “THE SPORTS
