As the fall sports come to an end, it is time for the winter sports to begin, including boys basketball. Boys basketball have had tryouts and have also began practicing for their upcoming season. This season there will roughly be around 6 Seniors, 5 Juniors, 10 Sophmores, and 10 Freshman.

The same as previous years Kantonio Davis, Dean of Students, will be coaching our boys basketball team.

“I feel good about this season. Most of the kids out there understand what I expect and I feel like that will be beneficial for the team,” shared Davis about how he’s feeling about this upcoming season

These boys began workouts at the beginning of summer break and continued all through summer break for the most part. They took about a month break when school first started back. Ever since their month long break, they had workouts 3 days a week up until fall break. Once they returned from fall break, tryouts started. The boys began practicing and are now starting to play.

This year, the teams main goal is to finish either 1st or 2nd in their district. This is a great goal that they are going to have to work extra hard to achieve.

There are a few seniors this year such as Michael Watson, Reginald Wadley, Tyler Sanders, Tongun Gore, Noah Collins, and Tiawun Bell.

Michael Watson is one of the seniors on this year’s team. He is looking forward to bonding with his teammates and competing every game we go against, whoever and wherever.

“Empires aren’t built in a day, meaning we’re gonna climb and climb. Once I feel we will be able to be that, [then we can be the] team we know we can be,” stated Watson.
