Both the Birdville Hawks’ Varsity and Junior Varsity basketball teams will be participating in a pre-season shoot-out on Thursday night at Bryon Nelson High School. Here are a few notes on the league:
- Coach Jeff Fitch announced that Jay Crane will be coaching the Varsity Basketball team during the shoot-out
- Crane’s son (Jeremy Crane) who is on the basketball team, said that (Jay) is out-of-town in Chicago, so there will be someone else on the sidelines, at least for tonight, anyways.
- The Varsity schedule for Birdville includes playing the current defending State-3A Champions (Argiulli): “They have lost a lot of their studs, from graduation, so I wouldn’t expect them to be anywhere near as good as they where last-season,”. Fitch said.
