Week of August 15

NOTE:  We did NOT finish tryouts since the weather was so bad on Friday.  We will continue the tryouts THROUGH Tuesday's scrimmages.  This will enable us to see the players play in games, as well.   On Monday, however, we need to hand out uniforms for the scrimmage.  So, there is a chance a player will receive a uniform on Monday and then have to return it, should they not make the JV or Varsity team, or choose not to play after they hear their role on the team.  Green and White socks will be available for $10 per.  They must have socks that match.

CUTS:   We can easily see keeping all the players.  However, we have 22 at the varsity level with a couple of players at the JV level who wish to move up.   Coach Hulings WILL NOT cut anyone but during and after the scrimmages on Tuesday he will make the determination of players and they will fit into four categories:

  1. Starting or reserve and pushing into the starting line-up
  2. Reserve and looking at coming off the bench most of the season
  3. Reserve and has a lot of work to do to play any minutes, but likely will
  4. Reserve and has little, if no chance playing very many minutes
