The San Antonio Commanders play their first road game of the season Sunday when they are in San Diego for a rematch with the Fleet.
That game is the first of four straight on the road for the Commanders. Here is what starting quarterback Logan Woodside, general manager Daryl Johnston and head coach Mike Riley had to say about the schedule:
From Logan Woodside:
“Something I’ve never gone through. I’m excited to go through it with this group of guys. I think they will handle it really well and it will be good for us.”
From Daryl Johnston:
“I’ve never done this before. I’ve never done a four-game road trip so this is going to be interesting. It’s not easy. We are all creatures of habit. We like our routine. We’re going have a different routine. The good part of that is we’re going to have the same routine for four weeks.
“It’s going to be interesting to see how this team responds. I’m excited for it.
“If you come back and you have success on this month-long trip, we expect to come back to San Antonio in that first home game for our fans to be out there – just as they have the first two weeks, have been great with their support. If we can come back with a nice performance on this month-long road trip, we’re expecting the Alamodome to be pretty excited when we get back into town.”
From Mike Riley:
“We’ll reep the benefits of that with more home games later on and we got to open up at home right away. We’re just not going to worry about it. You know what it’s the product of. You’ve got the basketball tournament in town. That’s OK. We’ll be alright.”
