The San Quentin Warriors basketball team’s tryouts were bittersweet for head coach Daniel Wright.
“30 Players tried out for the Warriors. The difficulty lies in the fact that only 16 to 20 players will be able to make it on the training camp rooster.”
Wright realizes the difficult decisions that he has to make in the near future. “Some very good, talented players are not going to make the team because only so many players can make the team,” he explains.
About 30 players tried out for the Warriors. The difficulty lies in the fact that only 16 to 20 players will be able to make it on the training camp roster. He noted a couple of players caught his eye and are for sure Warriors.
Asked what he was expecting to see during tryouts, he said, “Attitude and talent. And also, who I thought would fit good in the Warrior program and the Christian program we have here. A good attitude is the number one quality a player will have in this program. I will accept good attitude over talent, if I have to.”
He explained that there will be no profanity or derogatory language.
He said the type of system that he is going to run is a fast break, up-tempo, man-to-man system because it dictates the pace of the game.
Training camp will be on Tuesday and Thursday nights in March.
