Indians coach Darrell Andrus picked up his 100th career win with the 33-14 victory at Indian Stadium on Friday.
“Winning your 100th game is a good feeling, but you also sit down and think about how many people have helped you get to that milestone,” Andrus said. “It sounds kind of like an individual award…but I give all the credit to the great coaches I’ve worked with and the awesome kids we’ve coached. It’s a tribute to all them.”
