Cadet coach 'thankful' for opportunity to lead this team

Saturday, March 23, 2013 09:59 pm
Concordia Lutheran fell 73-70 in overtime to Greensburg on Saturday at the IHSAA Class 3A State Basketball Finals in Indianapolis.

Cadet coach Josh Eggold spoke with the media following the defeat."I want to say how thankful I am for the five gentlemen around me (in the media room) and the seven seniors we have on our team. I know that it's a cliché to give God glory but I do want to do that because it is the faith that we share in God that is the reason Concordia High School exists. To see these guys on the highest stage perform as hard as they can is a gift that we give to God for what He's done for us.""Tonight was a great game. It was a game that had runs and there were a lot of things that I thought both teams did to test the other. But Bryant McIntosh at the end of the game was just, he really stepped up and played great. He is the kind of player that can elevate things and he wanted the ball at the end of the game and made some nice plays. We want to congratulate Greensburg on a great season and for being the state champs.""It seemed to me like a slow comeback for them. It wasn't all at once, but hitting their free throws helped them. I think they had one three-pointer at half and finished with four so they were hitting a little better in the second half. One of the things we have done really well throughout the year is get out in transition and get some easy buckets and I don't think we got as many as we are used to. Buckets became really hard for us to come by for awhile.""Ryan has been in the postseason, I think, what has made us go. He has had really consistent play but Ryan throughout the season was a little up and down. In the postseason, he was extremely focused. He leaves after playing the best game of his career, which is really special for him.""Thomas is a kid that you can put - and this goes for all our players - in any situation. It's not going to be perfect, but its going to be authentically them and its going to be a humble situation. Thomas' speech makes us proud, that's a window into his heart and who he is."
