Maroa-Forsyth Boy's Basketball Hoping to Take Next Step

For the Maroa-Forsyth Trojans, football usually takes center stage but with a disappointing early exit, boy's basketball coach Aaron Ennis has the football players already in the gym practicing and a cushion of an extra week of practice.


The third-year head coach says he's been pleased with early practices and the energy the kids are bringing. Coach Ennis has plans for practices to be competitive leading up to the Trojans' first game Nov. 30.



The Trojans return just one starter from last year's team but overall Coach Ennis is excited about the talent and skill he has in the program this year. He says they have adjusted their offensive philosophy and are doing a lot of dribble-drive style half-court offense.



In adjusting the offensive philosophy last year, Coach Ennis indicates they saw their scoring jump by nearly ten points per game.



According to Coach Ennis, it's been a decade since the program has had a winning season and he feels they have the pieces to go out and break that streak. He is very excited about the culture within the program as he feels they have been very competitive since he arrived three years ago and now hopes to take that next step and start winning games.
