That's a check, mates

Adam Kopil

Andrean senior offensive lineman

We went and practiced at Lucas Oil Stadium on Wednesday. It was amazing. I wasn't expecting to drive through the tunnels. They were huge. You could drive a semi through them. The bus ride down was fun. We were having some intense chess matches. We downloaded it on our phones. Matt DeSomer is in first place. I won my first match and have a couple more to go. There was some occasional stealing of people's bags and hiding them. After practice there was a lot of sleeping on the way home. DeSomer is No. 1 in chess, I'm No. 1 in taking a nap. I slept most of the way down there.

No, I've never seen anything like that

By Andrean senior offensive lineman John Zemkewicz

Wednesday was exciting. We went to Lucas Oil Stadium and they drove us right down to the loading dock. We went straight to the locker room. They were amazing. No, I've never seen anything like that. No never, absolutely. We got there a little early so we were able to take some pictures and take it all in. Looking up at the dome was pretty amazing. I've watched the Colts on TV, but being out there was not the same. The turf was nice, really nice. We had to get used to the balls that we're going to use in the game. All in all it seems like a much faster surface.
