Fall Fastbreak – Reynolds

Reynolds Raiders
Coach (season, record): Dan Kilgore (2nd season, 10-11)
2011-12 overall record: 10-11
2011-12 region record (place): 3-7 (fifth)
2011-12 playoff results: Did not qualify for the District 10 Class AA playoffs.
Top players lost: Caleb Peters, Tanner Greenfield
Top returning players: Paul Torok, Cory Woods, Garhett Frable
Assistant coaches: Seth Little, Brandon Weaver
Outlook: Reynolds saw success under first-year coach Dan Kilgore with 10 wins but the Raiders will have plenty of holes to fill if they want to improve this year. Reynolds graduated eight players, including starters Caleb Peters and Tanner Greenfield. The Raiders will be short on experience this year but they could build throughout the season. Senior guard Paul Torok is back along with junior guard Cory Woods. Both are returning starters as well as sophomore forward Garhett Frable. The Raiders put in plenty of work in the offseason and could receive big contributions from junior forward Kyle McConnell, who had a big year with the junior varsity last year. Reynolds is in a tough region that is bolstered by the addition of West Middlesex. The Raiders will need immediate contributions from the younger players in the program to get above .500 this season.
