Despite a loss to Rosman 51-43 Tuesday, Nov. 22, Polk’s JV boys basketball team looks to make a lot of improvement on last year’s 15-loss, five-win season.
Coach Brian Taylor said he believes his players can do it, though.
“I think we will be around a .500 ball team with a lot of youth on the team,” Taylor said. “But I think the chemistry is what will be our biggest advantage.”
Taylor is working with three sophomores – Will Ballard, Trevor Arrowood and Wesley Brady – and freshmen filling in the remaining spots.
Taylor said his guys are willing to work hard to prove themselves. He also said they have a good cohesiveness as a team and are easily coachable. The team’s weaknesses will be size and youth.
Taylor said guys like the Ballard, Wes Brady, Bradley Osborne and Jordan Smith would likely be standout players. He’ll need those standout players too going up against typically strong JV teams from Hendersonville and Mountain Heritage.
The team will go into the season with the motto of “Play Together, Win Together,”
Other team members include Tanner Garrett, Dequan Gary, Josh Kornmayer, Alex Miller, Donte Poston, Konner Scruggs and AJ Searcy.
