Wayne county is looking for more in 2016-17.  The Wildcats lost only one senior off last year’s team that made the Region 6A Semifinals. This year they have great overall depth and their experience should be a huge asset.  The rotation will be eight deep and this team can score the basketball with just about anybody in their classification.

Coach Franks says it will be a great season if: 

“This team has a lot of potential if we can share the basketball and develop good chemistry. If our team defense improves from last year we could make a deep run in the postseason.”

Coach Franks says it will be a tough season if: 

“If players don’t buy into a philosophy of we being greater than me and the overall team concept it could cause chemistry problems that would be detrimental.”
