Meigs Looks to Coach Fry’s Experience< < Back to
The experienced Ed Fry will once again coach the sideline for the Meigs Marauders this season. Fry stresses rebounding, defense and pushing the ball on fast breaks. With a relatively young roster, Fry’s influence will be important on how hard this team works and how far they can go in the TVC.
Luke Musser is a junior this year, and he is looking to capitalize on an outstanding sophomore campaign. Musser possesses a silky smooth outside jumper that provides for a bulk of his offensive production. Coach Fry explained that Musser worked hard in the offseason improving his jump shot and added that his star player could be even deadlier from deep this year.
Another important player for the Marauders this season will be senior standout Kalieb Sheets. He traded in his football cleats for his basketball shoes, but the intensity Sheets shows on the gridiron will make its way over to the hardwood. If Sheets can stay tough on defense and be aggressive on fast breaks then look for him to be a big reason why this Meigs team could make a run in the TVC.
TVC-Ohio matchups look to be the Marauders toughest games this season. The team hosts Athens on Dec. 12. The Marauders then travel to Alexander Jan. 15.
If the Marauders want to compete in the TVC this season they need Musser to take that next step in becoming a leader on and off the court. Sheets and the other seniors will hopefully balance out the inexperience of the five underclassmen on this squad. If they fail to do so, the Marauders might be in store for another sub-.500 season.
But with a strong presence down low and the ability to push the pace on offense this Marauders team can become a contender in the conference this season.
