What will 2016 Hold For the Falcons?
The JV basketball team has operated at a different level than most every team this season. It isn't often that one sees a JV team put up 60, 70, even 80 points in a single game. Watching the Falcons play before the varsity team is like going to K.I.S.S concert and realizing that Aerosmith is opening up. Jackpot!
The Falcons sprinted through the Western Piedmont Athletic Conference virtually unscathed and came out on the other side eager to prove themselves at the varsity level. As the season comes to a close it is easy to daydream about the wealth of talent the Falcons will have next year.
As many of the JV players move up to join the varsity team, others will fill more prominent roles with the junior varsity team. The JV team sported a Kentucky-like rotation of team A and team B this season that wore down the opposition. Different players seemed to show up each and every game with a career high off the bench. These players might have been overshadowed by the play of some of the starters, but next year will be the time for these players to shine.
The JV season has gone by at lightning speed and has left most fans wanting more. Reluctantly, the fans will just have to pack it up for the time being and wait for summer workouts to roll around.
Congratulations to the Falcons on the impressive season. Looking forward to next year!
Lance was one of those guys that came into a game and shocked the opposition. At first glance he looks a little undersized, and when he comes off the bench late in the game most defenders think they can relax. Big mistake!
Lance is a triple threat. He can get into the lane; going to his right and his left. He can hit the floater consistently, and drop it off to the bigs if he draws too much attention. If you dare drop off of him, he will drain the 3-pointer. He has made multiple threes on several occasions this season.
He has the ability to be a pivotal player next season if he continues to work hard in the off-season.
Joshua Sisk takes the ball strong to the basket. It is evident that Joshua is no stranger to the weight room.
Alex got his own rebound and took it to the basket against the Eagles last week. He played an excellent game for the Falcons.
