Coyle called up to varsity team

The junior varsity boys’ basketball has lost one of its starting five players as C.J. Coyle (10) has proved himself worthy of being on the varsity squad. But the varsity team’s gain is the JV team’s loss.

“It’s cool he got moved up but we need him, he really helped us out,” Hayden Bramel (10) said.

Coyle was the leading scorer on JV and helped lead the team, now the team needs to put in extra effort to make up for his loss. But not everyone on JV is worried.

“Don’t get me wrong. I love playing with C.J.,” Isaac Pierre (11) said. “But him not on the team means more minutes for me.” 

Coyle said he has mixed feelings about moving to varsity.

“Being on varsity has always been a goal of mine, and I was upset when I has put on JV this season,” Coyle said. “But I’m actually having a lot of fun, and I don’t know if I’ll like the change.”

According to varsity Coach Wardell Collins , playing time shouldn’t be something Coyle needs to worry about and that he’s proven he’s a good player. And he’s not the only one looking forward to Coyle being on the team.

“I’m excited to play with C.J.,” Kyle Peters (11) said. “He’s a good decision-maker and can definitely help our team win some games.”
