McEntire happy with play of young Wolverines at Franklin scrimmage

With much of his varsity squad still playing football, Polk County head boys basketball coach Josh McEntire still got a first look at his 2014-15 squad on Thursday as the Wolverines traveled to Franklin for a preseason scrimmage.

Most of the Wolverines who made the trip were freshmen and sophomores, but McEntire was still encouraged by what he saw.

“I was very pleased with the way we played during the scrimmage,” McEntire said. “A lot of young guys got some valuable minutes (Thursday)¬†night. We were competitive most of the night playing mostly freshmen and sophomores.

“I’m excited about the skill and depth of the freshman class.”

McEntire was also enthused with the play of the two upperclassmen who did make the trip, junior Jaylin Wilkins and senior Marc Longshore.

“The two upperclassmen who played showed that they will consistently compete for minutes on varsity,” McEntire said.

Polk County is scheduled to open its regular season on Thursday at Brevard.
