Tomorrow night, Andrew Daspit, Cameron Parker and Paul Joubert will play their last home game as part of the varsity basketball team and for these seniors, it is a bittersweet feeling.

According to basketball coach Brad Jeffcoat, this year’s seniors have chemistry on the court and the fact that they genuinely like each other has gone a long way in helping the team be successful.

“The seniors we have this year have been very coachable and dependable for us,” Jeffcoat said. “They are always willing to work a little bit harder and that mentality trickles down to the rest of the team.”

According to Jeffcoat, there are always ups and downs with groups, but the guys are always committed and dialed in. Jeffcoat said that it is nice to coach kids who are devoted to basketball like these guys.

“I hope they all go to college and get a degree and I expect them to do just that,” Jeffcoat said. “I hope that some of the hard work and lessons they learned with us will be able to help them in college and their professional lives after that.”

According to Jeffcoat, he is going to miss having the seniors around especially Daspit, who has been on the team for four years, and Parker, who has been on the team for three years.

“It’s going to be different without them around,” Jeffcoat said.

Jeffcoat said Parker has been a pretty good ball handler for the Bears and has done a good job creating open shots for his teammates. One of his favorite memories of Parker is when he made two floaters against Coldspring in the first round of playoffs last year.

For Parker, something he enjoys about this year’s season is the fact that everyone seems to get along and makes each other laugh.

“I love the competitiveness about the game, and I love how it feels to win a close game at the end, such as our first play-off game last year,” Parker said.

Some of Parker’s favorite memories throughout the years have been playing and competing against fellow teammate Andrew Daspit.

“I will miss the competition of high school and again, my teammates and coaches,” Daspit said.

Another one of Parker and Jeffcoat’s favorite memories that they will miss are the good times, laughs, the bus rides, and the energy in the locker room after games.

“I’m looking forward to playing with some of my teammates that I’ve been playing with through the years growing up,” Parker said.
