Interview of the Week – Salisbury Basketball Coach Andrew Sachs
Sachs: Yes…we have all moved on…unfortunately in a tournament setting all teams end up losing except one. We have learned from our mistakes and the program is moving forward, but without Wyatt (Smith) we had a year the university and our supporters can be proud
Pencek: What were your parting words to the team as you concluded the 2016 season?
Sachs: We want to be a part of the fabric of the Delmarva community. Spreading the love of basketball and teaching young children how to get better, enjoy this great game and learn to compete is part of that.
Pencek: Are there aspects to this camp that are unique?
Sachs: We really have two different camps. The 24-26 is our shooting camp, we will focus on the fundamentals of shooting and work with kids on how to shoot coming off screens, off the dribble, post shots, etc…the 26-29 we will encompass all basketball skills in addition with game play. campers have the choice of doing day camp or stay overnight. We want to teach kids how to get better and enjoy this great game.
Pencek: I noticed some of your players are assisting, did yiou have to twist any arms for that help (lol)?
Sachs: There is no of-season for coaches…I will take a couple of weekends to re-charge and see family ….but We will continue to try and get the program better everyday. Recruiting will be a big part of that, July is the busiest month for that with AAU tournaments in the mid-Atlantic region..but we will always have on-campus visits during the summer…scheduling and making travel plans for the season are also Done over the Summer… and we have finalized our schedule for next year we are just waiting for some contracts to come in and the 17-18 schedule is pretty much done too I just need one more game. We will continue to work on fund raising ideas and we will also be organizing the 25 year reunion of the ’91&’92 teams for homecoming which the ’92 team was the best in school history and I was privileged to be the assistant with coach lambert on those teams. Our guys have the strength and conditioning program to work on and they will be working to get better too.
