ASD head coach Paul Kulick said playing against a much bigger squad proved to be problematic for his team.
“In general, we had a great homecoming game against Indiana. Our boys played hard, but we ran out of gas in the second half. Our boys had to play all offense, defense, and special teams. We have a problem with depth that we’ve struggled with against bigger teams like Indiana. Two of our best players got hurt in that game, and we had to change some positions which were very difficult for us. Indiana is a great ball team.”
Kulick knows depth will be a key factor again this week against Fayetteville (3-1).
“Depth is the most important for us if we want to play in that game,” Kulick said. “I hope we play without injuries. Hopefully, our boys will play the perfect game from beginning of the game.”
Having a bye week proved to be helpful for the team.
“Bye week is really helpful for us because some of our players were hurt and it gave us more time to heal,” Kulick said. “Some of them are getting better and getting ready for the next game. Hopefully, we can get a full team to play Fayetteville.”
Kulick knows he will need all of his players healthy to beat a talented Fayetteville team.
“Fayetteville is 3-1,” Kulick said.
“Fayetteville is having a great football season this year. They have a monster offensive and defensive line, which will be difficult for us to defend against. Coach Limbaugh did an outstanding job with his football program.”
The Silent Warriors have had a strong week of preparation for the Wolves.
“We had a great practice all week,” Kulick said.
“They practiced hard. I hope they will be ready for Fayetteville.”
ASD hosts Fayetteville tonight at 7 p.m.
