The Nordheim Pirates may have their best year and currently have an overall record of 11-4 and not short of players.
Last year the Pirates had eight players compared to this year’s 11 players and lost after the first round in playoffs.
Nordheim coach Carlton Williams said, “We are trying to add more depth. Last year we were six deep and they had to play a lot of minutes and still work on defense. This year, if we can get our defense and rebounding together, we have a shot to second or third round in playoffs.”
Senior Eli Julian may be the highest scorer on the team but it does not come without the help of his teammates.
“Julian gets a lot of points because how the team works together. During the first game against Yorktown, D.J. Anderson had 11 assists and nine of them were to Eli. They do a good job finding each other,” said Williams.
