Until next time&. Fall is here, and with it, the excitement and expectations of a new team here at Sheridan. After a summer of reflecting on the past season and preparing for the upcoming season, our staff is anxious for the chal- lenges that await us.
We know that we will eventually have many challenges on the court against some great opponents this season, but our biggest challenges will be amongst our team and our drive to be the best that we can possibly be. One of our favorite sayings here at Sheridan that we con- stantly tell our players is cWe cWe cWe cWe have met the enemy, and he is have met the enemy, and he is have met the enemy, and he is have met the enemy, and he is us. d us. d us. d us. d So many ... more. less.
times in athletics, both players and coaches are so concerned with their oppo- nent that they don't focus on the only thing that is in their control, which is themselves. We can 9t control what other teams in our league and region are doing to prepare for the upcoming season, but we can prepare ourselves by starting the academic year off on the right foot, by working hard in class, by having productive skill, strength & conditioning workouts, and by building the habits that separate good teams from great teams, such as timeliness, attention to de- tail, sweat equity, and learning to be a servant to a greater cause than our own selfish desires, which is the success of the team.<br><br> We are confident that we have every ingredient neces- sary for our team to be suc- cessful. We look like a good team on paper. The question is, can we translate it to the floor and can we get our players to mesh together to prepare for a championship run?<br><br> Only time will tell! We look forward to staying in touch with all of our supporters throughout the year.

It has nothing to do with budg- ets, it has nothing to do with scholarships.<br><br> What Sheridan College does have is a great supporting community and a college faculty and staff that supports this program through the good and the bad. Your program and college is only as good as the people they sur- round it by. Sheridan 9s hiring committees have consistently held true to their pre-requisites and what has developed is a college atmosphere unlike any other at the juco level.<br><br> School spirit is at an all time high, not only from fellow students and peers but from professors and staff as well. Student-athletes at Sheridan could look into the stands during a competition and consistently see their pro- fessors and advisors. Athletes are also assigned host family 9s that serve as a home away from home.<br><br> Our host family parents take this job very seri- ous and attend games and cheer as if their assigned ath- lete was one of their own. All of these advantages helps mold the SC program into what it has become today. A group of indi- viduals that come together for a common purpose.<br><br> Not just to play and compete but to be- come better human beings and learn valuable life lessons that will help them down the road. Sheridan College has had its fair share of bumps in the road but everything is turned into a learning experience here, and the college, the community, and the program knows that if one guy fails then the whole team fails. We are all a part of something greater than winning championships.<br><br> We are a part of a movement for becoming the best we can be.

If you want disci- pline in your program you have to make it clear that this will not be a tolerable action from the start. Here is an ex- ample of how we set the tone.<br><br> The first time one of our ath- letes is late to class or a work- out or even worse misses a class or a workout we punish the whole team. At Sheridan College we all pee in the same bucket. So if one of us fails, we all fail.<br><br> So at the first sight of slippage we get everyone up at 5 am and do what we call Purgatory. I have come up with a series of exercises the entire team must complete. Some involve weights, some are just flat out running.<br><br> We like to think our conditioning Year two at Sheridan College has officially begun and my excitement level has skyrock- eted through the roof. This is always a fun time of year for any coach because for the first time you will see your rookies interact with your veterans. Almost immediately your ath- letes will start to separate themselves.<br><br> Some in a bad way and some in a good way. Coaches must stress to their athletes the importance of being on time and putting forth a great effort in the classroom and in workouts. Most kids entering a college program have never been held account- able for their actions.<br><br> In high school if they show up late to class they would be marked tardy. This has no effect on the mind set of a student-athlete. If they sessions push our guys to the limit.<br><br> One of these purgatory sessions then would push them over the limit and into the water. We try to make them realize from the start that we hold our team to a higher stan- dard than others. If the same player keeps slipping up we will continue to incorporate the entire team up to three times to see if someone will step up and help the kid.<br><br> After that we cut our losses and send the kid off!!! You can bet that this grabs the attention of our players and they soon realize the impor- tance of time management. We just hope that they get the mes- sage before they have to pack their things and head down the trail.<br><br> Best of luck this year! - Coach Wicks Assistant Coach Luke Wicks Men 9s Basketball 3059 Coffeen Ave. Sheridan, WY 82801 Phone: 307-674-6446 Ext.<br><br> 4000 or 4003 Fax: 307-674-3351 Sheridan College Generals TRADITION Announcements Announcements Announcements Announcements Sheridan College Men 9s basketballs annual 3pt.
