Pidgeon Forge is optimistic for 2016-17 as it returns 5 varsity players from a year ago. They will be more athletic, more versatile defensively, and will shoot the basketball better than a year ago. They lost some length and athleticism from a year ago but this squad has good leadership and excellent attitudes.  If the newcomers step up they could be a team that will make a move in 3-AA.

Coach Jessie says it will be a great season if: 

“Finding quality depth at each position, improved execution, and staying healthy will be key.”

Coach Jessie says it will be a tough season if: 

“Young players and newcomers are delayed in ability to contribute positively.”
