InlandFieldhouse.com: Is two touchdowns in the second half enough right now?
Justin Fisher: It was big for me, especially it was big for my team. I wanted to do everything I could because we were struggling in the beginning, handing the ball off, penalties everywhere, but I’m just happy with what I did to help my team out.
InlandFieldhouse.com: What was the key to getting the offense going after the slow start?
JF: We just needed to focus. Our tempo is so fast the we lose focus. For us to get it together, coach talked to us at halftime, told us what we were doing wrong and what not, and we just picked it up.
InlandFieldhouse.com: What will you remember about this game?
JF: Make less mistakes. The game is based upon which team makes fewer mistakes. We made a lot of mistakes, and they didn’t really take advantage of it, so we kind of picked it up in the end.”
InlandFieldhouse.com: Can you think about college ball yet?
JF: “Yeah. I took a visit to University of Arizona. I liked it. And on the 19th I’m going to Nebraska with Tanner, so I’m really looking forward to my Nebraska visit.”
