Attitude Change has Rocky Boy Boy's Clicking into Divisionals

Posted: Updated:

The talent was never questioned at Rocky Boy where the boys team returned a handful of players from last years District Champs. The answer, to turning this season around, was a change in attitude.

"Positive, and coming together as a group at the right time, and having more will, I guess," Junior guard Bubby Gopher says.

"I think we came together as a team, right at the right moment at the right time," Senior Desmond Parker adds.

A coaching change also coincided with the turnaround. Jerome Gopher took over the Varsity about a month ago, and Rocky Boy has lost just one game since.

"The talent is there. They have been playing since they were young guys, since they were 5 years old up till now. I remind them every game, trust each other. It's a brotherhood," Jerome Gopher says.

"This guy stepped up. We needed a new coach to step up and it helped us a lot you know, negativity went gone, positivity went up," Junior Jr. Day Child adds.

After finishing the regular season 4-6 in league, Rocky Boy ran through the District Tournament last week. Now, it's back to Divisionals where the Northern Stars aren't afraid to be an underdog after getting knocked off as a favorite last year.

"Rating is just a number to them. They were one last year too and they came down from that, and that's just a number. Just go out there and play your game," Jerome Gopher says.

"It's going to take hard work, communication on defense and just teamwork, playing together as one," Parker adds. 

Rocky Boy has done just that as of late, and if they continue to, might get back to their first State Tournament since winning it all in 2010.

Rocky Boy plays Harlem Thursday at 6:30pm in the first round of the Northern B Divisional Tournament in Glasgow.
