Skyline boys return solid core

Springfield, Mo. (  -- -- Skyline looks to continue to improve in Buck Shockley’s second year at the helm after coming over from Conway. The Tigers return a solid nucleus to build around in 2012-13.

Head Coach – Buck Shockley, 2nd season (11-15)

2011 Record- 11-15 (Lost to Eugene in district semifinals)

Returning Starters:  3 (Tyler Curts, senior; Logan Bryan, senior; Jared Freddie, senior)

Players to Watch – Trey West, sophomore; Dylan Mountain, freshman; Harley Kays, freshman.

2012 Outlook

Skyline’s success will hinge on its ability to mix the returners with a talented crop of underclassmen. Despite only losing two players from last year, the Tigers will need seniors Tyler Curts, Logan Bryan, and Jared Freddie to fill the void left by departed seniors Brennan Holt (last year’s leading scorer) and Andy Vaughn. The three headed monster of Curts, Bryan and Freddie also anchored the Skyline football attack, leading the Tigers to their second consecutive state quarterfinal berth.

Odds and Ends: Skyline will drop down from Class 3 to Class 2 this season, adding to the postseason aspirations of the Tigers.
