Coach’s Outlook: “This team has been very busy this off season, as a program we have learned a lot from last year that will help us become a more consistent and competitive team both within our league and out of conference. We have a great balance between our upper and lower classmen both in terms of numbers and talent. The key for us will be our team leadership, how well we gel early, and how good our depth will be. We’ve only gotten outside three times due to the weather, 2 scrimmages and a practice, but both times the boys got outside and played they left us (the coaches) with a smile on our faces. Everything we do matters and that’s something we’ve told the boys day in and day out, we feel this team has the ability to do something special this season.”

Coach’s Outlook: “We are really excited about this year. We have a lot of great young talent that are really hard workers and hungry to get going. We are looking forward to the challenges that the early part of our season will bring and working throughout the season to becoming the best team that we can be.”

Coach’s Outlook: “We are a very young team, looking to capitalize on all the Varsity experience our young guys received last year. With the majority of our Varsity guys returning, and some real high-quality newcomers mixed in, we’re looking to make sure that last year’s 3-13 record was an anomaly.”
