Head Coach Steve Williams saying Friday that the community support has been overwhelming.

"The kids are so appreciative of everything that took place from the interstate on, how everybody out in DeFuniak Springs came out to support them when the bus came through," he said. "That'll be the thrill of a lifetime for them. After the emotion of yesterday and spending the night there last night, sort of that rush goes away, to see them again after going through there, that was just unbelievable."
