ABC-13 Team of the Week: Staunton River basketball
MONETA, Va. (WSET) - It's Team of the Week Wednesday on ABC-13.
This week, we spotlight the Staunton River boys basketball team. The Golden Eagles are off to a perfect 5-0 start, after defeating Glenvar Monday night. It's quite a turnaround off the 3-win season coach Brandon Harris's team experienced a season ago. But players say they've been working hard to turn it all around.
Josh Thomas, SR Senior "You know, we've got guys in the weight room this year. We got stronger, quicker, faster. You know, we worked for this all summer, I think we deserve everything we're winning right now. We want to win as brothers, we want to do everything as a team. You know, I trust these guys with my life."
Brandon Harris, head coach, staunton river "And these guys, I think they were tired of it (the losing). They had had enough. And our offseason was tremendous. We spent a lot of time in the weight room and gym, and now they're playing for each other. They're excited to be here. You know, sometimes you've got to go through the struggle to appreciate the other side. And I think, right now, our guys are appreciating the other side."
