RIGHT NOW I LIKE …

Our senior leadership.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE …

How physical we play on the defensive side of the ball.

WHO WILL BE THE TEAM TO BEAT IN SCOL

Clinton-Massie because they are not only a league power but also a state power.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM, SEASON

We have 47 players on our roster and a little more than half of them have bought into what it takes to become a winning program. Our offseason lifting program really improved this year with 25-plus players participating, but in order for us to become a better team in the SCOL we need to get our roster up to 60-plus players with the majority of them working year-round to become a better athlete. With saying that, I could not be happier with how hard these seniors have worked since I was named head coach in January. These seniors have taken ownership in this team and they will determine how successful we will be this year.
