Dave Ellerbee's 2018-2019 Outlook…:

On the Roster: "I have a roster full of Philly-style guards that are tough and crafty.  Over time, I have learned as a team that they are willing to work hard and play the game that the way it was meant to be played."

On the Schedule: "We have a very difficult schedule to start the season.  The very competitive Region XIX schedule is vastly approaching and the willingness to work hard will get us through the season."

Overall: "The combination of the aforementioned attributes will keep us viable throughout the season."
