DAMASCUS HIGH SCHOOL BOYS VARSITY BASKETBALL
We spoke with Coach Marshall, getting the teams 2013-2014 forecast.
Returning Players, We found that they have 7 returning players, with 3 being starters
Key Players to look for this season, Connor Burke. Very versatile, athletic player – is very quick and has improved his shooting range this year. This
will be his 3rd year of varsity basketball – 2nd as a starter.
How the team look so far, We are very small. Tallest player is 6’2″. Very guard heavy. Teams with height will be a real challenge for us. The kids will play hard but we must focus on rebounding.
Predicting where the team will be at the end of the season, Our record has improved every year over the last 3 years and we hope to continue that trend. Last year we were .500 and lost in the 2nd round of the playoffs to Urbana
Who will be their toughest competitor, All of the 4A teams will be tough competitors since we are 3A. Gaithersburg, Clarksburg, Churchill, Northwest, Whitman and Walter Johnson will all be tough. There won’t be any easy games in the 3A either. We need to win those games to secure a playoff seed.
As for games that would be on a Don’t Miss games, Clarksburg – mainly because they are our biggest rival in all sports. They have a very, very good team this year.
