OKLAHOMA CITY—After a rebuilding year last season, the Westmoore Jaguars look forward to competing this year with other 6A opponents.
Coach Scott Hodges enters his second year with the program and has three returning starters as well as other players with experience, which gives him more confidence entering the 2010-11 season.
“We have 95 percent of our scoring back, our best defenders are back, and we are going to throw some sophomores in there that are really talented as well so we have a lot of depth this year,” said Hodges.
As far as what to expect from the Jaguars, they are keying in on the tempo they play with, defensive rebounding, and getting the ball inside-out to give the post players more touches.
But those key things aren’t the only things the Jaguars expect this season.
“We expect to win every game,” said Hodges. “ We’re never going to become the kind of program we want to become if we just say ok we are going to go out and try to be competitive?in my opinion we’ve got the talent to do so.”
Coach says that his team isn’t going to win every game, but that they must go into every game with that mindset in order to compete with the best teams in the state.
The Jags look to Blake Pulliam, a 6-foot senior, who brings a lot of experience to this squad. Pulliam averaged 11 points per game last season and he is a preseason honorable mention candidate.
