Marcela: Yes, that’s fine, but you want to send a message to the other players that you’re a force to be reckoned with.
Kenji: I’m going to have faith in my abilities, and hope for the best.

Marcela: At least try to look tough. Try scowling at the other players like you can’t wait to get them on the field so you can crush them.

Could you paraphrase underlined sentences?
'get' them? what is the actually meaning for 'get' here?

And.... "you can crush them" crush them in the sports play or...what?
Thanks in advance!!

    Try scowling like you can't wait to get them on the field – you want to give them the impression that you want the game to start now!

    Why? So you can crush them – beat them badly in scoring (whatever the game may be).
