WHY do you play the game?
The Brook Hill basketball program plays to win, but there is a lot more to it than that.
Players play to honor God with their talents. Coaches teach discipline, hard work, teamwork, how to succeed and how to deal with failure. All of which players will need to become Christ-like men. The Guard basketball program has seen a lot of success appearing in the playoffs every year since 2006 and in the Final Four in 2009, 2010 and 2014. After falling one game short of the Final Four in 2016, Coach Agnew will look to take the Guard to even higher heights this year.
After an up and down regular season and a great playoff win in 2016-17, the 2017-18 Guard will look to improve this season by making a run at the TAPPS 5A Final Four.
Returners this season include Sr Reid Hill, Sr Miguel Vega, Sr Campbell Fletcher, and Jr Jared Johnson. The Guard will add some length to their lineup with Jr Conner Livesay and Soph David Roberts who were big contributors on the JV team last season. The outlook is great for the Guard basketball squad.
“I think we have a really good chance to bring home the district championship this year. With our returners and the depth that we will have, our team will be tough for anyone to handle,” Coach Jacob Agnew said.
They will tip off their season November 7 in a scrimmage against Troup right here at Brook Hill. Time: TBD
