Quotes

"I haven't really done [shared snaps] since freshman year when I was doing it with Nate [Scheelhaase]," O'Toole said.  "But whatever helps the team.  I think we're both capable quarterbacks at moving the ball.  We both do things a little bit differently, but he's a great quarterback, and I have the utmost confidence in him to things well, and I have confidence in myself."
"I noticed how much food was being thrown away and I knew something had to be done."
"Increasing taxes without looking at how that money is being spent is irresponsible."
"You know the biggest thing is how much he cared about people.  He helped so many players from going back to his days with Peoria high school days, giving them a chance, pointing them in the right direction, to our players through the years.  Talking to all the former players this last week, just to hear their stories about how they helped them and that's what Wayne was all about.  He did it quietly, he passed quietly without anyone really knowing.  I didn't even know.  I just felt so bad when his wife called and he did his job quietly."
