EASTERN Ky. (WYMT) - The next team in our DQ Grill and Chill countdown to tip off series; the Allen Central Lady Rebels, who are under the direction of new head coach Derrick Newsome.
Heading in to the new season the Lady Rebels are one of those teams looking to challenge Betsy Layne for a district title. In order for them to accomplish that, goal they will need to use their balanced attack to their advantage.
"They play hard. They play hard, they play together, and they play smart. If you have a team who can do those three things, you can win ball games", said coach Newsome.
"I think we have a good balance. Like, some of our guards can play down low too. Like we have good height advantages", said guard Hannah MacElhose And, we have good guards, good shooters, and good post players."
"We need to play as a team. Play with our heart, our mind and give 110 percent every day", said forward Deshea Elliott. Play as hard as we can, because that is what is going to win, to be a family and talk."
"Just working hard as a team, and I am a lot more determined this year to win. A lot more focused", said guard Brooklyn Martin.
