Sullen said his team is starting to gel.
“It is still early in the season and we want to develop a sense of identity on both sides of the ball, but the cohesiveness is starting to come,” he said. “Offensively, we want to be balanced. We want Derrick to run the ball and also to give our quarterback (Justin Thomas) a chance to throw. Defensively we want to apply pressure and have the secondary take away the big play. It is a matter of better understanding our rules on offense and defense as the season goes on.”
Sullen said the Saints have been impressive.
“Matherne is doing a phenomenal job there, adding to their legacy,” he said. They are doing a phenomenal job with the offense and the defense has been good as well.
“The key for us will be making as few mistakes as possible. Of course, special teams is an area where they have excelled and is an area we are going to have to work on. Defensively, we will have to be aware of their offensive formations. Offensively, we will have to focus on converting first downs and know that first downs will lead to touchdowns.”
Paul leads W-M with 344 yards and five touchdowns. St. Louis quarterback James Reina has thrown for 499 yards and six touchdowns.
