We’ve been blessed with some great quotes during this postseason.
From John Pfohl’s relentless criticism of the referees at his game (classic in and of itself), to Harrison Taylor’s “he’d better be in the hospital” to Andre Pettway, to Barlow’s Mike D’Amato, “I didn’t fall on the ground for nothing,” on the final play of the Waterford semifinal. Or Bassick assistant Bernie Lofton‘s “See you at Gampel.”
But, Billy Lovett just trumped them all, going Joe Willie Namath on us.
“I guarantee we’re going to win a state championship!” he yelled in the aftermath of Weston’s 38-33 victory over Sacred Heart in the Class M semifinals.
Like Pfohl, Lovett’s been getting a lot of flak for this on the chat boards. And, as much as this might rankle Waterford who, frankly, deserve some credit, understand this: Coaches who hold their tongue are boring. Billy’s not boring just like Bassick’s Harrison Taylor isn’t boring.
I’m sure it’s not what Billy’s High School coach Bob Hurley would have said. But nonetheless…
I love it! I absolutely LOVETT!
Just shows you how much Weston wants this title. There’s no team that wants a title more than Weston. And Billy’s the personification of the whole team and town, who, quite honestly believes the same thing no matter what lip service you may hear.
You go BL.
Weston by 25.
