Boy’s Basketball Awards-Season Top Ten-Coaches Corner
The ReSporter wanted to spend some time going back to Round-Ball for the Girls and Boys teams.
Share some All-Time and Season Records and Post-Season District Awards along with a Coaches Corner as next season has started the clock.
The information below has first place in Hawk Green.
All the other Hawk Green is based on players that played this season. So a player might be 7th on the Top Ten List but if he made that cut then he will have his name highlighted.
The ReSporter hopes you enjoy this article and thanks to all the parents of the Seniors and good luck with these young man as they prepare for their next journey.
Many times is not only the players that are missed but the supporters and Parents are also top on that list for The ReSporter and Canyon Lake.

The ReSporter: Give us your overall thoughts on this past season.
Coach Chapman: “It was obviously the best season in program history, so we were pleased with what we did. We had some really memorable moments and games that will stay with the coaches and players for a long time. I told my wife the other day that I really miss the season and the games, bus rides and practices. She looked at me like I was crazy, but I do really miss being able to coach our players and seniors and get ready to compete against someone else. It was a lot of fun, and we accomplished a lot of good things.”
The ReSporter: Tell the Hawk Nation bout this Senior Class and what they have accomplished for round-ball.
Coach Chapman: “Up to this point this senior class has been our most accomplished. They led us to two playoff births, our first winning season and a lot of big wins. Like I told them last week, they were the pioneers to take our program to new heights, which is very difficult to do. It is always difficult to be the first ones to knock down a wall and plow through it. They have really opened up our program, and made a path for future teams and players to walk through. Our young guys now expect to be in the playoffs and compete for district championships, and that is because of our seniors. Aside from all of the basketball accolades, they are fine young men with very bright futures. There will undoubtedly go on to accomplish some big things in their lives, and I look forward to seeing those things.”
The ReSporter: What type of activity do the players do now during this time of year?
Coach Chapman: “Right now we are back at it working for next year. We have told our returners that the 2017-18 season has already started. We are in the weight room and in the gym working to get bigger and stronger as well as more fundamentally sound. In May we will compete in our spring league and then probably play in summer league over the summer. We also have a solid group of players getting into the gym before school and working on their game, which is exciting to see. We are only a week into the off-season, but our players have really done a great job of working with energy and excitement.”
The ReSporter: The Track team just inherited a lot of points from this crew of basketball players. What does that say bout their athletic skills?
Coach Chapman: “We were a very athletic group this year, which carries over well to track. Obviously the McDonoughs will earn a ton of points each week in several events. Gerrit has always done well in the hurdles, and now Charlie has come out to compete in a few jumping events. Bennie is also competing in the distance events, which he is very committed to and good at. It’s exciting to see them doing so well in track in just their first meet.”
The ReSporter: You will have a lot of holes to fill next year….your JV team won district, what are your thoughts as this group of players start their quest for another round in the playoffs for next season?
Coach Chapman: “Just looking at who we have coming back and who other teams have coming back we feel we can and will be very successful next year. Like I alluded to earlier, our younger guys just expect to be in the playoffs because of what our seniors have done. They understand that we have to have a great off-season and need to improve, but they just have a confidence and belief in what we can accomplish. We are losing 8 seniors, so a lot of our younger guys look at that as an opportunity to fill a spot. I fully expect us to battle for a district championship this year, and hopefully make some noise in the playoffs.”
The ReSporter: Thanks Coach for your time this year and we look forward to next year’s Basketball Chapter.
