"All season this team has been about intensity passion and heart. They are at their best when being free, fierce and having fun and that's why we've enjoyed so much success. This team has been grateful and excited to compete week in and week out with one another in a sport they are all passionate about. We are humble but hungry and have a unique bond. We now head to Fort Worth as one team with one goal. I believe in this team and their resilience as they will fight to the very end with everything they have."
