Q&A with Dominique Wallace

TheSabre.com: Your team is 11-0 heading into the Division 4, Region I final against Powhatan. How has your team been able to be so successful this season?

Dominique Wallace : Team chemistry. We’re really a team. We enjoy practice and being with each other. We enjoy going to practice. It does not seem like a job where you have to be at practice. It is really fun and we enjoy it.

TheSabre.com: Has there been any change in the team dynamic since the playoffs began?

Dominique Wallace : We still practice pretty much the same way. We try not to change things too much. It is just like every single game. We’re a little more focused here or there.

TheSabre.com: Do you have a consistent pre-game routine? Any superstitions?

Dominique Wallace : I do the same thing before every game. Right before every game I take a knee and say a prayer. I also wear a wrist band everyday and I give it to one of our trainers before every game. He is autistic. I give him the bracelet every game and that gets him real excited. I do it right before pregame.
