Green Wave boys' basketball
Coach: Wayne Thrall, 1st season at NMHS and fifth season as a varsity head coach; previously coached at Brookfield High.
Coach's outlook: "Led by a strong senior class and returning underclassmen with varsity experience, expectations are high at New Milford for the upcoming basketball season. My goal right now for this group is to come in and work hard and make it a point to improve every day. With a new coaching staff and new system, I've been extremely pleased with our work ethic and our willingness to learn in practice."
"If we can maintain focus, I feel we'll be competitive within the South-West Conference and qualify for the state playoffs.
"This group will look to Nick Eherts and Joe McKay for senior leadership, while I expect the underclassmen to step up and be strong contributors. Losing Scott Eherts to a season-ending football injury certainly hurts us depth wise, but his ability to lead the underclassmen is still prevalent. We have several players returning to the program who I expect will provide us with some depth off the bench in Scott's absence. Overall, I'm quite pleased with our progress thus far and I'm excited to see these guys on the floor on game day."
