Outlook:

Red Bank graduated all 5 starters last year along with six seniors. Tory Sewell, a freshman guard last year saw heavy Varsity minutes and worked his way into the 6th man role.  Red Bank lost their leading scorer and PG last year who led the Chattanooga area in scoring and 3 pointers. The makeup of this year’s team will be predominantly underclassman. Red Bank will be very young, with two Seniors, a Junior, and the rest Sophomores/Freshmen. This squad will be bigger and longer than in the past with a tad bit more depth. They will look to create offense off their defense.

Coach Fike says it will be a great season if: 

“If the boys continue to buy into what is being sold and defend like were capable of. I expect some bumps in the road due to lack of experience, but I believe that if they can overcome adversity, they could be a very special group the next couple years.”

Coach Fike says it will be a tough season if: 

“We are not consistent, defend and view adversity as an obstacle instead of a stepping stone.”
