KEY PLAYERS RETURNING

Jared McLaughlin, Colton Dunseith. Both returning players will have a tremendous responsibly to help lead us through the rebuilding process.

RIGHT NOW I LIKE

Is their work ethic. August 22 was the first day of classes and for some players this is their first full week of training. Most are sore but continue to work hard. The heat is a factor for a lot of our players.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE

All of our new players will have to make huge contributions to be competitive this season.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM, SEASON

Although this is going to be a challenging season, the program is showing some signs of progress. I have already received several inquiries from area high players and there interest in playing for SSCC next season
