ROCKDALE TIGER HEAD COACH MARCUS MCNEIL

SAYS THE TIGER BASKETBALL PROGRAM IS BASED ON

FUNDAMENTAL IDEAS…

“SO WE START OFF OUR PROGRAM WITH

BELIEVING, WE COMMIT, WE STICK TOGETHER AS A

FAMILY, AND THEN THROUGH THAT PROCESS, WE

WORK HARD, CONCENTRATE, COMMUNICATE AND

COMPETE. AND SO, WE’RE GOING TO KEEP ON

REITERATING THOSE THINGS, AND IT WILL TAKE OFF

THORNDALE BULLDOG HEAD COACH JOHN KOVAR

SAYS THE FOUNDATION IS LAID EARLY, AND THEN TEAMS

BUILD ON IT AS THEY PROGRESS THROUGH THE PROGRAM…

“WE TRY TO DO ABOUT THE SAME STUFF, JUNIOR

HIGH ON UP, AND THEN JUST ADD LITTLE WRINKLES

WITH EACH GROUP, DIFFERENT WRINKLES WITH EACH

GROUP, JUST DEPENDING ON OVERALL STRENGTH.

BUT WE’RE GOING TO PLAY MAN TO MAN, AND WE’RE

GOING TO GET AFTER YOU, AND RUN THE SAME BASE

OFFENSES AND THINGS LIKE THAT, JUST TRY TO PLAY

FUNDAMENTAL BASKETBALL.”

“THEY’RE STARTING TO FIGURE OUT MY SCHEME,

WHAT I LIKE TO DO. I LIKE TO PLAY A LITTLE FAST-PACED

THINGS. BUT YEAH, I’M ONE OF THOSE COACHES WHO

LIKE TO PLAY UP-TEMPO A LITTLE BIT.”
