Coach’s outlook for 2011 season:

“The 2011 team will have a new look to it after losing 15 seniors to graduation. This year’s team is focused on competing and earning a spot back in the postseason. These guys do not want to be overlooked as they understand that many people believe we lost too much to compete again. It will be interesting to see how the new group of seniors blend with the youth that is coming up and contributing this year.”

Team: Phoenixville

Coach: Joe Youngblood, first season

2010 record: 4-14 Overall 3-11 PAC 10

Coach’s comments: “We are a relatively young team with only five seniors on the roster. We will need to rely on some younger guys to step up and fill holes in our lineup. This is a great group of young men who have continually risen to every challenge we have given them.”
