Coach’s View

We have a great group of seniors and juniors who are committed to doing all the right things in the off-season. We have a legitimate shot to compete for a region championship if we can stay healthy in key spots. This team has an opportunity to accomplish some things that have never been done here. The goal is to eat breakfast after practice on Thanksgiving Day. If we can do that, then we have had a good year.
