COACH'S COMMENTS

“... I feel like our basketball program has so much potential. All 3 teams have a ton of talent this year. Last week's games were our first of the season so we had some growing pains, but overall we looked pretty good.

"...Me and Coach Ratcliffe are super proud of all the hard work and effort these kids give for us. We have a great group of young men and we look forward to an awesome season. We encourage everyone to come out and support these boys this year.”
