Charger boys set for breakout season

With the future looking positive for the North Decatur boys basketball team, North is aiming for a return to the sectional championship game and a shot to return to championship status.

Head coach Kyle Nobbe said the coaching staff looks forward to working with a younger but eager group of players.

“We’re pretty excited about the kids we have,” said Nobbe.

Nobbe said the coaches are “really confident” with the juniors that are going to contribute at the JV and varsity level.

“Hopefully it bodes well for the next three years, not just this year,” said Nobbe. “It’s been a positive because all 18 of those kids have really been competing hard and fighting for minutes and positions, whether it’s playing on the JV team, or trying to get minutes with the varsity team. That’s going to be important that we have that all season long. We constantly tell the kids, ‘don’t relax because you feel like you’ve made this roster, or you’ve cracked in the starting lineup. That needs to be the beginning of the work and the effort that you have to put in.”

Depth will be important to North’s bench, especially the first few games.

“ You can run as much as you want in practice, but it’s hard to simulate that intensity that they’re going to have on Friday and Saturday nights,” said Nobbe. “It’s imperative that we do have depth, and that the kids who either are starting or coming off the bench are going to be kids that can contribute. We’re really confident as a group that we can do that.”

Junior Eric Moorman will play wing or post, while junior Austin Brown will play guard.

Sophomore Dayne Lecher started a majority of varsity games last season at point guard, and will play point “quite a bit” this season, according to Nobbe.
