Watch.”
Coach Shelby is also bringing in positive energy stating “everyone looks good from not being able to be able to play for a while. Everyone looks ready to play and have a lot of heart going out and the seniors seem ready for anything.” Despite the team’s lack of gym practice opportunities at the moment that hasn’t stopped them from working hard. Coach Shelby commented “We are working on defense, communication, and growing as a team.” Coach Shelbys approach this season has opened up just like most sports because of previous COVID restrictions.
