The Dunlap boys basketball team looks to rebuild with their new head coach and team this year.


The Dunlap boys basketball team is seeking to reconstruct the team and set a base for future eagles with their young team and new head coach, Raymond Card.


Conner Rockow, a senior on the team, says, “A team relies on everyone. Coach Card has made it clear that we all have to do our jobs. If that isn’t scoring, it’s getting back on defense or grabbing rebounds.”


According to Rockow and junior Jackson Chatterton, the team has lost many upperclassmen but have gained some strong underclassmen who will contribute.


Rockow says, “Most of the team from last year is gone, including four starters which hurts. However this year, I think as a whole we have added many players who will fill those spots well.”


Chatterton adds on by mentioning Brock Card, Joe Swanson, Will Pressler and Gabe Calhoun are a few of the underclassmen who will contribute to the teams success and speed they play at.


They team will be successful as far as the speed goes but focusing on communication is key as they have never played together before.


“Coach Card has helped improve us in our communication. Everytime we’re not talking in practice, we have to run, so he’s really on us about that,” Chatterton said.


Coach Card has also been making sure the players improve off the court as well.


“Coach Card makes everyone better as a person and a player. He demands the best out of every guy on the team whether it’s on the court or in the classroom,” Rockow said.


The team is currently 1-3 and hopes to add a win to their record as they play at Washington High School next Friday.
