Chobee Nation was coached by OHS Brahman Boy’s Basketball coach Demetre Riles. Riles had four members from his Brahman squad including Shaquoy Ferrol, Demetrius Clark, Andrevious “Boo Boo” Stallworth and Kysell Richardson.
Sports Cast for July 15th:
Diamond Wiggins said she is determined to improve her basketball skills so she can be more of an asset to the girls’ basketball team. Wiggins has always been one of the better athletes on the team. She becomes a junior this year.
She said her improvement will have to come at the offensive end. Wiggins said the 16 win season last year was a testament to how hard the girls worked.
Wiggins says she thinks this team can break the long drought Okeechobee has experienced when it comes to no regional playoffs for girls’ basketball.
The OCRA Triple A all-stars compete this weekend in the Dixie Youth State tournament in Sebring. They finished second at the District 8 tournament last month in Lake Placid.
