"Football is always important, but it's not the priority right now, family is," Head Coach Bill O'Brien told ABC13 as they arrived.

The team wanted to get back to their families, many whom have been evacuated from their homes and are currently sheltered.

Plans are being made for some of the coaches and players to make visits around the community in the next few days.
