Team Preview – Ripley Boys

Coach: Lonnie Starks, 5th year at Ripley (291-98, 130-39 at RHS)

District: 15-AA

2015-16 Finish: 1st in District 15-AA, Eliminated in Sectional

Top Returning Players:  

Travon Alston – All District 15AA and All Region 8AA

Famous Jones – All District 15AA and All Region 8AA

Jamari Bostic

Outlook:

Ripley is coming of a 28-7 season that resulted in a district championship and a sectional appearance.  Coach Starks has had tremendous success but this season could prove to be one of his tougher coaching jobs.  The program is in rebuilding mode and will need its younger players to step up this year to emulate its success from last year.

Coach Starks says it will be a great season if: 

“We can develop a point guard.”
