The Arrowhead boys basketball program is getting ready for their season. The first day of tryouts—and the season—starts on Monday, November 12th. The tryout will go from 3:00 pm till 5:00 pm, in the east gym at North Campus.

“Our team will be built with five concepts as the cornerstones of our foundation. In order to make sure that the foundation is strong, we must reinforce these concepts as much as possible. The repetition of these concepts will give the players the confidence they need to be successful,” says Craig Haase, the team’s head coach, on the team’s website.

Those five concepts are humility, respect, unity, passion, and communication.

Haase says he has been mentally preparing for the season.

“I am super excited for the season. We have a good group of kids coming back and they have been looking forward to the season,” says Haase.

The team last year finished with twenty wins and seven losses with their final loss to Kettle Moraine in the playoffs.

Senior returners include Tyler Goiun, Jacob Boray, Jack Hazod, and Cole Kyle along with a experienced junior in Carter Gilmore.

Senior Guard Boray has also spent some time thinking about the upcoming season.

“I am super optimistic about this season. We have a good team with some great talent and solid senior leadership,” says Boray.

Both Haase and Boray feel the team will be better than last year.

“Obviously, every year you try to get better than the previous, yet a lot of work and buy-in is going to be needed to be better than we were before. The potential is definitely there, yet it is our job as coaches to make sure we play the best we can,” says Haase.

Boray said, “I think this team is going to be better than last year. The returners have gotten better and the younger guys coming in have some great skills that can be utilized.”

The team is entered into several tournaments this season they have not been in before.

“There is a really cool opportunity we get which is playing at the new Bucks arena in Fiserv Forum, which I think will be an awesome experience as a coach and especially for the team,” says Hasse.

“I am in love with being able to play at Fiserv [Forum], and I think it is a great way to showcase how good of a program Arrowhead is to everyone, and I am very excited to do so,” says Boray.

Boray feels confident that he will help this team.

“I think personally I am going to bring hard work and effort to the team, and I am not going to force anything fancy or whatnot because I know my role,” says Boray.

Haase feels they are going up against a tough couple of teams, and have a schedule that will challenge them.

“You know we have a difficult schedule as normal, but that will help us down the road because it will help us learn and become better overall as a team, especially seeing great teams like Milwaukee King and Wisconsin Lutheran,” says Haase.
