Wow, is this not the worst season in Moffat County High School history for their boy's basketball team? I wonder why? Does anyone else? or is it that all is good because the people that got the previous coach fired are able to have their child more court time without so much effort put on them at practice. The result of good practice ethics rolls out onto the court.......obviously by looking at the stats do the boys hold practice or just get together on game day for a shoot around? The talent that is on the Varsity team, there should have been no doubt they should have been in the number one or two slot. Now its just over at the end of the week. Sorry to the seniors for not being able to experience a great season.

they are a great bunch of kids with alot of talent...however I dont think its fair to blame the coach. There has been a lot of turn around on the coaching side of boys basketball. It is going to take awhile to build it up. I support and encourage the kids....seems that your awfully critical of both boys and girls coaches....maybe some patience and understanding might be more productive than negativity.
