On how the team all came together
'From the very beginning Coach Myers and the whole staff came to Arizona State and made us believe in ourselves. They came in saying, `We're going to make it to the World Series this year.' At first we were kind of like, `okay,' you know, coming off the season the year before. As the season started progressing we were so excited and we started seeing it. Everyone was exuding a presence about them of how much they wanted to be out there and how much we were going to fight to have a spot in the World Series. It's been our coaching staff believing in us and having the confidence in us. That's why our team has come together, and we could become this gigantic family. We all just have great team chemistry.'
