As a team, what are your offensive strengths?
We lost 6 kids to graduation and they accounted for over 90% of all offensive categories (scoring, rebounding, assists, etc). Replacing them will be a tough task. This years players will face a lot of early growing pains to develop a new offensive identity and to fill new roles on the team.
As a team, what are your defensive strengths?
All of my top defenders graduated as well so again we will have to fulfill new roles defensively and might have to change up what we do defensively to best fit this years players.
Defensive Areas you hope to improve on over last year:
Defensive Rebounding will be very important with our lack of size.
What are you most excited about in regards to this year’s team?
I’m excited to see how they grow and progress through the season.
For the fans, what is the must-see game of the year on your schedule?
Our annual Upriver Rampage game against Kamiah is usually a great game for our fans because of the close proximity of the schools and the other school competitions that go with the game. It is also a fundraiser for the local food bank.
