Despite losing the team’s second leading scorer, Dhalil Sadiq, and another key guard, Dan Richards, Head Coach Colin Haynes remains optimistic.
“We have a great senior class with most of them having Varsity experience, each of them having certain skill sets,” Haynes said. He also specifically referenced sophomore point guard Jordan White, whom he expects to have a “phenomenal” year, as well as a talented and hard-working group of freshmen.
Despite the major losses, he isn’t wavering one bit: “We would like to remain as Audubon Holiday Tournament champions, make the Friends League playoffs, make the NJSIAA playoffs, and get better each and every day.”
“I think we have great chemistry this year with many seniors on the team,” Senior co-captain Joe Beideman said. “We are looking to be competitive in the friends league, while not getting down on ourselves for losing to future NBA players. We hope to win the Audubon Tournament for the second year in a row and overall have a fun year as a team.”
Last season was a bounceback year for the Foxes, posting a 9-13 record with three Friends League wins and an Audubon Tournament title. They put their brutal 4-21 campaign in 2013, during which they went winless in the Friends League, behind them.
