JV boys focus on building good citizens, players

Thomson High School Junior Varsity Boys Basketball Coach Bobby Caldwell is happy with his team's start, but he's also cautious about the future.

"There are too many variables to predict outcomes," Coach Caldwell said. "I just hope for maximum effort, good sportsmanship, consistent progress and a group of kids that are willing to work hard."

He also added that he has seen many of the kids improve since he started working with them over the summer.

"Our strengths are their willingness to work and a desire play hard and learn. They all bring positive attitudes and understand that basketball is a team sport," he said. "There are usually tremendous turnovers in JV programs from year to year and each team must establish itself and find its own identity."

Though the team is making progress, Coach Caldwell said "the biggest weakness is defense and consistency."

In the end, it's not the outcome that matters most to Coach Caldwell.

"We are a work in progress striving to produce good people, good players, good students and American citizens," he said. "If we win, all the better."
