“I love every one of these guys,” HPU head coach Brady Gregor said. “I asked them one question when we finished today: did they ever give up? I believe all of them when they say they fought until the end today. We caught the draw with extremely tough conditions today. It’s the fight these guys have that will keep us climbing the leader board as we look to post something low on moving day tomorrow.”
