2017-18 Foothill Boys Basketball Capsule


Head coach: Kevin Soares, 19th season

2016-17 record: 23-10 (7-3 Southeast, second)

Returning lettermen (starters): Seven (three)

Top players: G Marvin Coleman (Sr.), G Jace Roquemore (Jr.), G Michael Shaw (Sr.)

Outlook: A year after finishing as the Sunrise Region runner-up, the Falcons bring back seven lettermen, including three starters.

Coleman (15 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists per game) could be among the top players in the state. Roquemore (10 ppg, 5 rpg, 5 apg) and Shaw (6 ppg, 4 rpg) also are capable of big things.

“Shooting will be our strength this season,” Soares said. “If we can guard the ball on defense and our main guys show up every night to play, we will have a shot at the regional title and a state berth.

“I like this team and their chances.”
