There were few suprises in the 1st round of 4A playoffs as top teams dominated.
Future Bronco Continues March To State Title
"Yeah, it's been a great season," he said. "We knew we had a great team going in, but we got to keep playing hard," he added.
"We play Wheat Ridge this week in the quarterfinals. We beat them in the title game last year," he said. "They do a lot of different things on offense, so we'll have to play with discipline against them. We should be fine as long as we play our game."
"I think I've had a pretty good season," said Pint. "Statistically, I've probably played about half a season since we pull our starters in the third quarter. I'd say I've probably played a total of six full games this year. It can be tough, but I don't need those reps. We need those young guys to get them."
Oddly enough, Valor Christian finished with a record of 4-6 during Pint's freshman year, but you wouldn't know it based on the last few seasons. The Eagles are going for the "three-peat" this year and have dominated their competition since Pint's sophomore season.
"We had a lot of young guys my freshman year," he said. "We've just grown and gotten better with each season, but there's no doubt that we have the best coaching staff in the state. Our coaches are dedicated, we're dedicated, and that has shown on the field. We're always trying to get better."
The talented LB says he keeps in close contact with LBs Coach Bob Gregory.
"I spoke to Coach Gregory on Monday," he stated. "He was just checking in, seeing how things are going. He was out here a few weeks ago for our game, but said he'll be coming back if we're fortunate enough to make it to the (state) championship game."
"Coach Gregory is an interesting guy," he said. "He's really low-key, but the defense at Boise State speaks for itself. He's a great coach. I've always felt that I respond better to 'teaching' as opposed to those that just yell at you. Yelling doesn't get through to me. Coach Gregory seems much more like a teacher."
"I'm 100% committed."
How does the Boise State defense compare with Valor Christian? In terms of scheme?
"We attack a lot just like they do," said Pint. "We mix up the coverage, throw in an all-out blitz, and throw some 3-4 in there too. That's why it's tough for teams to prepare for us. You can't watch the film and just assume that we'll play the same way. We're always mixing it up."
And the possible move to the Big East?
"I think that would be great," he said. "I remember watching ESPN and seeing them talk about it. Honestly, the conference that we play in doesn't matter too much to me. I'm fine with anything as long as it's D-1."
