MILWAUKIE — The La Salle boys are looking to improve on a 20-win season from a year ago. After finishing co-champion of the 4A Tri-Valley Conference, the Falcons lost in the round of 16. The key to this season’s success, says head coach Jared Curtiss, is to “play better offensively and take care of the ball.”
Curtiss is looking for big seasons from returning seniors Sean Hays and Jacob McGraw. Fellow seniors Alex Soberanis, Valentin Gashongore and Ian Johnson look to help propel the Falcons deeper in the playoffs.
“We play fast and teaching the kids how to play, not just run plays,” Curtiss said.
The team's rallying cry for the upcoming season is from Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.”
