Glenville, WV – Head Men’s Basketball Coach Stephen Dye is a big believer that giving back to the community is very important, not only does it help the community that supports the Pioneers but it also teaches players a great deal about responsibility.
Last week on September 11th, Head Coach Stephen Dye and his team honored 9/11 victims and their families by meeting at the city park and discussing briefly our nations history. The team gathered together and took a few pictures under the American Flag before beginning their conditioning workout through town.
“9/11 was a horrible day for all Americans,” said Coach Dye. “I wanted our team to remember what our nation has been through, and to remind them we should honor the victims from the attacks as well as all the soldiers that have fought to protect this great country.”
The men’s basketball season is just around the corner and the coaches and team are already in full gear. Immediately following the team began its conditioning workout by running up the college hill to the Jesse R. Lilly Gymnasium and back four times while wearing a 40 pound weighted vest.
“We have a great group of young men and are really excited about what is in store for this team this season,” stated Coach Dye.
The Pioneers open up the 2012-13 season on November 6th when they play an exhibition game against the West Virginia Mountaineers in Morgantown.
