Polytech Panthers Head Basketball Coach on 2015/16 Season: ‘It’s Just About Heart.’
Watch the raw interview with Polytech Panthers Head Coach John Pierce.
Dover, Del. – The Polytech boys basketball program had a 22-2 overall run last season that took the Panthers all the way to the championship game.
Despite a 45-52 loss to Salesianum, Head Coach John Pierce believes his team can make a similar run this year.
“I have some seniors that’ll be ready to step up and do some things,” Pierce said. “We won’t be as tall as we normally are but I think our guard-play will be very well.”
Coach Pierce will rely on guards Chase Chapel and Zachery Price to lead that charge.
Before their run last year, the last postseason the Panthers saw was in the 2012/2013 season.
“I think if we play hard and do what we’re supposed to do, we can repeat what we did last year,” Pierce said. “It’s just about heart.”
