What happened to WFR


What happened to WFR

WFR was much improved the last couple years. Made states etc.... What happened? Soft early season schedule padded win column, but now they have lost 5 of 6....Only lost one guard, lots of returners. Anybody close no what up?

RE: What happened to WFR

last years point guard was really really good

RE: What happened to WFR

the Cap 8 is loaded.

RE: What happened to WFR

Will Perry, last year's point guard is now in Hickory playing college ball. That was a huge chunk of leadership taken away.

They have also had some off the court issues with players this season that I will not elaborate on.

It comes down to the fact that this team is not a cohesive unit that plays together. They have some good individual players but they don't play together and that has cost them in a tough Cap8 Conference.

RE: What happened to WFR

I agree Bri, Will was and is a nice little player. Only worth 10 pts and 5 assts a game though, plus maybe a few less turnovers when he was on the floor. I don't know if that is the difference??? Wakefield had them down by 18 or 20 last night and WHS is down this year! They had no heart, no organization.

However, who is ultimately responsible for off court issues and the academics of the selected players? Who is responsible for the cohesiveness of the team?

RE: What happened to WFR

WFR lost more than Will Pery.With that being said this years team ought to be ashamed of themselves.They do in fact have several players who are all about themselves and not the TEAM!!!!!Way to much TALENT to lose the games they are losing.

RE: What happened to WFR

WFR hasn't been the same team since Chuck Hess retired a few years ago. First Wakefield and now Heritage opening haven't helped, but they have not competed at the same level or with the same intensity since he left.

RE: What happened to WFR

You are 100% correct.

RE: What happened to WFR

Their decline also coincides with the rise of the football program. If some of the better athlete's choose to focus on off season training for football that may thin the talent for basketball as well.

RE: What happened to WFR

mjjohnson you are absolutely correct. The shame of it is...it doesn't have to be that way.

RE: What happened to WFR

Mjjohnson and loosey

No offense but that is not logical. WFR offers strength classes during the day for credit which frees up the afternoon for players to participate in other sports. In other words, off-season training at WFR happens during school, not after school during the winter which does not conflict with basketball.

The sport most affected is track because of spring skill development which does occur after school.
