Thoughts from Coach
Tuesday, October 9th
First and foremost I would like to thank Ann Knostman for bringing this Heath Basketball website to life. We have been throwing around this idea for the last couple of years and with Ann’s expertise in regards to technology we were finally able to bring the idea to fruition. I hope the website can become a great tool for everyone in our program to utilize as we continue ‘Raising Expectations’ for the Hawk basketball program. The website is still a work in progress so please check back often with updates to the schedule, new pictures, booster club information, & ‘Thoughts from Coach.’

We grew up a little last night. At one point, we had three freshmen on the court at the same time. Playing against a perennial top 5A team in the state. I told my Varsity guys I was not a coach that believed in moral victories. I was disappointed that we lost, and we will continue to work as hard as we can every single day to get better. That being said, I was very pleased with our effort last night. We played hard with a sense of urgency. We played with a purpose. And we played with confidence. I was proud of all of our guys last night. Freshmen fought all the way to the end. JV played really well and got a win. Special things are taking place at Heath High School. Get on board folks!! We are in the process of building a tradition!
GO HAWKS!! #RaisingExpectations
