Coach’s Outlook: “Following a disappointing cancellation of the 2020 season where we graduated 12 seniors, we were fortunate to be able to play in a 2020 summer tournament to allow those boys to play together one more time. The 2021 team is welcoming several new athletes that will be new to the game but are working hard on their individual skills and are viewing the regular season as a steady climb to be as strong as possible going in to district playoffs in May. If we learned anything last season it is you can’t take anything for granted and we are going to enjoy every game that we have the opportunity to play this year.”
