The “Boyce” boys basketball team at PHS is at the starting line of another exciting season.

After a playoff run and a stellar season last year, coach Dave Boyce and his squad embark on hopefully another great season.

What stands out to coach Boyce before the season?

“This is the smallest team we’ve had, yet it is the most athletic,” he said. “We have to pass the ball and make good game time decisions.”

With consistency and good teamwork, the team should find success this season. Senior Connor Jordan said “this years team chemistry is the best its been.”

The team is a very close group of friends, and it should play to the teams advantage throughout the season.

Junior Jake Myers added “we are trying out a running system.” He explained that this would speed up the game and capitalize on the team’s athleticism. Myers later said it was their goal to perfect this new system at the beginning of the season.

Jordan and Myers agreed that the toughest league opponent this season will be against Sylvania Southview. Myers went on to say that this years Southview team was “loaded.” The game against Southview will be a huge.

Coach Boyce said it was his goal to “play in big games in February.” By perfecting their new offense, playing strong defense, and good teamwork the boys basketball team will have a great opportunity to win those big games.
