Haughey described his hopes for his teammates. “For younger guys, just work hard and do everything you do with a purpose.”
The Trojans and Coach Mark Cunningham (Athletic Dept.) honored their late Coach Gene Molway before the game. “Coach Molway instilled everything that a football team needs. Discipline, respect, effort, accountability, leadership, perseverance, and most importantly brotherhood. He taught us how to win. He also told us how we should’ve acted if we lost. We never experienced that feeling with him but nonetheless he still taught us it. What I believe is that he is the foundation to our success,” T. Lucas said. “He sets the groundwork for what we all would eventually become. He taught so many small little lessons.I can guarantee that without him most of us wouldn’t  the way we are today. He didn’t only make us all better football players but to grow into better men which was his main concern.”
