NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- All summer, Lou DiRienzo tweaked his practices and workouts to foster more competition. There were one-on-one drills and they all came with a carrot: The winner skipped pushups or running laps and got to delight in watching a teammate sweat.

With so much talent back and so much success within his team's reach, DiRienzo wanted the players to know that winning won't be easy.

He'll be the one to make sure of it.

"We need to learn how to compete," the New Rochelle coach said. "I don't think we knew how to compete last year."
