Hey Y’all

Happy Holidays!  Sorry for the delayed post.  I’ve been all over the place, and haven’t shot prep football in a while, hence the absence in POTW.  But here’s a change-up.  Last week or so, I had a different press conference to cover each day.  How do you make talking heads look interesting?  Here you go:
