2019-20 SEASON OUTLOOK

Last year’s record was 5-21, with a Big 9 Conference record of 5-15. The Falcons placed fifth in the its section.

First year head coach Garcia spent five seasons with the program coaching the JV and ninth-grade squads so he's already familiar with his players, their abilities and style of play. Though he wants to team to play at a fast pace, he want to continue to focus on each day as it comes.

"As the season progresses, I expect our team to keep getting better and better as we learn our new offensive and defensive philosophy," he said.
