2003 Quotes from opposing coaches from their local newspapers:
“Our thoughts first of all are on (Stanley) Zwinggi,” Smith said. “He’s definitely a threat and has the ability to take over a game."
Boerne's defense will have to play well in order for the team to be successful Friday. The Greyhound "D" has to figure out a way to keep talented running back Stanley Zwinggi in check.
Zwinggi is one of the top backs in the area and has rushed for 1,641 yards and 17 touchdowns through eight games. He averages over 200 yards a game and 8.7 yards per carry.
"I don't think there's any question he's the best (back) we'll see this year," Bludau said. "He's a lot bigger now than he was last year and he's got tremendous speed. He gets a lot of yards after contact which is a mark of a good back."
Defensively, Bludau said the Hounds will stick with what has worked for them all year, but admits Zwinggi will test them."
"Our game plan is to try and contain somebody like that, you don't stop somebody like that, you just try and limit the big play with him," the coach said. "We won't change our defense for him, but we'll know where he is at all times."
Tailback Stanley Zwinggi, a 5-foot-11, 180-pound senior, has been Fredericksburg’s biggest offensive weapon this season. Last Friday against Boerne, he toted the ball 18 times for 183 yards and scored touchdowns on runs of 12, 78, and 5 yards.
“Zwinggi is the fastest runner in the district,” said Hinojosa. “He is the kind of runner that you really hope to be able to contain as much as you can, because you don’t figure to stop him completely.”
