Fall Fastbreak – George Junior

George Junior Tigers

Coach (season): Pat Devine (5th season)
2011-12 overall record: 8-13
2011-12 region record (place): 0-6 (fourth)
2011-12 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 Class AAAA playoffs.
Top players lost: Everyone
Top returning players: None
Assistant coaches: Ryan Devine, Ryan McNamara, Adam Gibson
Outlook: George Junior coach Pat Devine is in a tough situation each season. He doesn’t have any players back and deals with a new set of players each year. This year will be interesting as well because the Tigers dropped down into Class AAA. George Junior only had to deal with three teams in Class AAAA but it drops into a brutal Class AAA region with speedy and talented teams. The Tigers have plenty of work to do in camp and they won’t get any time to ease into their schedule. After playing in the Lakeview tournament, George Junior jumps right into region play against Slippery Rock.
