The Akins Eagles Basketball boys are ready to enter the season 2016- 2017 con dent.

The players and coaches alike believe that they will do good this season. Expectations and hopes are especially high for head coach Jesse Hayes. Hayes said he is trying to create good habits.

The team said coaches are being more stricter to them this year, Hayes said he doesn’t like seeing the team being lazy. When he makes the team run at practice and they lean down to their knees, he gets mad and makes them run again.

“It’s tough but I know (Hayes) wants me to be the best player I can be and (Hayes) has high expectations for (the) team,” senior Henry Stewart said. “He is just making sure that we’re doing what we’re supposed to, even if it means that he has to be hard on us, it’s for our own good,” Said Shooting guard Koebe Dawson.

Akins’ new district will pit the Eagles against new teams that can bring up a new challenge. However, if the team can stay focused on teamwork they have a chance for success, Hayes said.

“Although the district is tough,” Hayes said. ” the toughest challenge heading into the season, is the expectation for the year. “Getting better every day can be very difficult, but it is a challenge I am de nitely looking to face,”Hayes said. “ the main goal is to get better everyday and to go deep into the playo s,” point guard and junior KJRobinson said.

The  players said there’s a good chance of making the playo s this year. “I think we’re gonna do good we’re going to grow as men, were going to be determined to get better and get some wins,” Robinson said.
