KEY PLAYERS RETURNING

Seniors Joe Holcomb and Dylan Miller; Juniors Reighdyn Bare and Noah Armocida; Sophomores Derick Bowman, Ricky Davis, Matt Grogg, Sean Holland, Tyler Holland, Dale Sturgil, Cole Feirl. Holcomb is the defending district champion in both shot put and disc and has the potential to break the school record in both events.

KEY NEWCOMERS

Brent Hopkins, Jacob Burden, Hunter Browning, Tanner Creager. We have a lot of new and first-year high school throwers and runners who look like they have a lot of potential.

RIGHT NOW I LIKE

We went from having the smallest boys team I have every coached last season to largest this season. They have been working hard and for such a large group I have been impressed with their effort, behavior and attitude. There is going to be good team competition to earn one of the top spots for each event.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE

We need a little experience and we are still trying to figure our lineup. Unlike last year we have many potential options and much greater depth.
