Neosho boys young and rebuilding

Springfield, Mo. (  -- Neosho looks to go in a new direction this season under first year head coach xx xx.

Head Coach – Jason Horn, 1st season (0-0)

2011 Record- 4-22

Returners: 2 (Andy Lett, senior; Preston Johnson, junior)

Players to Watch – Cole Bishop, junior; Cadin Hendrix, sophomore; Logan Stuart, sophomore; Chris Paullus, sophomore; Brett Williams, freshman; Darrian Guillory, freshman; Lukas Werneke, freshman.

2012 Outlook
Bad news for Wildcats fans, expect 2012-13 to be another rebuilding year in Neosho. Returning just two players from last year’s 4-22 team, the Wildcats are trying to usher in a new era under first year head coach Jason Horn. Senior Andy Lett and junior Preston Johnson will look to replace the scoring void left by Ethan Murray, now at C of O. Although the Wildcats will take their lumps due to their inexperience, the silver lining is eventually these freshmen and sophomores will be juniors and seniors.

Odds and Ends: Neosho has just one senior on the roster entering 2012-13.
