Once again, I want to thank you all on behalf of our players and coaches. We are incredibly grateful for the support we have received from the 12th Monarch these first two weeks.

Our players commented to me on Sunday that they felt you were even louder vs. Virginia Union then you were vs. Chowan. You have helped to motivate our players to perform at a higher level with the "Juice" you are bringing on game day!!! Our players are feeding off of your energy and excitement!!!

Our only regret this week is that we are playing on the road and will not get to see you all. We travel to Jacksonville to take on a team that was undefeated at home last year and 9-4 overall. If we could find a plane big enough, we would take all 20,000 of you with us!!!

We will try our best to represent Old Dominion and our fans in a first class manner this coming Saturday. We are hopeful that many of you will make the trip to Jacksonville and help us come home with a win. If you cannot, we look forward to seeing you all again on the 26th of September in "Our House" when we take on Monmouth.

- Coach Wilder
