Coach’s comments: “I’m really excited how these guys came together during the summer. Now we’re piecing things together. I love the buzz, I love their energy. The football guys had a great year; we’re trying to get them in rhythm and feed off their success. I realize there is a margin for learning my system. We have maturity, seniors, some size and some speed. I’m hoping the maturation process will be faster than normal.
“We’ll be an aggressive team and utilize our depth, going eight or nine deep. Offensively we want to go inside-out, understanding that we need touches on the ball so we can get good shots. We want to stretch defenses. It’s all about understanding our strengths and executing. Every possession matters. We have good skills, good talent. If we can piece everything together, we’ll have a nice season.”
