COACH’S COMMENT: -FALLSBURG COACH RON MILLER
“We are very young and inexperienced, but we have some good size and the kids are very coachable, they also want to learn,” Fallsburg Head Coach Ron Miller said. “We will run a motion offense and will try to use our size.” What the kids do in the classroom dictates what happen on the basketball court. Our Motto at Fallsburg is Ready, Responsible and Respectful.” Miller saidLawrence Co. Select team
Lawrence Co. Select team
…Would also like to give some attention to the Lawrence Co. Select team which is a mixture of kids who are in the 2nd to 5th grade and Coached by Greg Woods. The youngsters will travel to Boyd Co. and play in a team league most Saturdays to get the kids exposure. The team will also play travel teams from the local area in Johnson Co. Martin Co. Carter Co. and Boyd Co. and the team will also play some local tournaments. This does not take kids away from the LC Hoops league which is really thriving right now according to Coach Woods some of the kids on his team play both and as far as he knows the kids haven’t missed either one. –BB
