"We're confident at this point, but we're not cocky."
– Josh Anderson

"I hear some of the disgruntled remarks in the coffee shops ... If you understood the amount of work it takes to just coach a team, and then to be 25 - 0, you'd never say those kinds of things."
-- Coach Anderson

"I guess you could say we were in a little funk for a few games, but I think we've come out of that now."
-- Coach Watton

Convincing wins in the district tournament and a perfect 25-0 record provided the 1995 Warriors with great momentum going into the state tournament.  Add to that the experience of eight consecutive previous state tournaments and Wahoo was the pre-eminent favorite to take home the Class C1 trophy.  Another factor pointing toward a third consecutive title was Wahoo's return to Class C1.  In previous Class B tournaments there had always been a question mark regarding Wahoo's season schedule, since Wahoo played few Class B teams.  In the 1995 Class C1 field there were two teams Wahoo had defeated in the regular season, Ashland and Grand Island Central Catholic.  GICC was ranked #2 at the end of regular season and many expected the championship game to be a rematch.  Although optimism abounded, there was still some call for caution.  Those close to the program knew that, on occasion, this Wahoo team had sputtered.  But for 25 games, they had managed to come out on top.  They needed to do so for three more games.
