Indian River basketball

PHILADELPHIA, N.Y. (WWNY) - Coach Tim Callahan's Indian River boys' basketball team currently sits at 5-3 on the season, 2-2 in conference play and 1-1 in division play.

The warriors have wins over Potsdam, Carthage, South Jefferson, Oswego, and Massena.

Indian River has two seniors and two sophomores, with the rest of the team made up of juniors.

The Warriors like what they've seen so far this season and feel like they have a chance to take home the Frontier League A Division title.

“We’re a group of young guys, I’d say,” senior guard Sammy Angelo said. “I do believe we have some guys that can really help us out and we can get a positive result at the end of the season and we got guys who just really want to learn and get better every day and that really helps us out.”

"We have a young team for sure," senior guard Bobby Alexander said. "At first I didn't know what to expect with all these new guys that haven't really played basketball before, but a lot of them are definitely moving on and progressing very well and I think we'll end up being pretty good and competitive throughout the season."

“I’m learning from them and we’re getting to know each other and it seems like a nice group,” Callahan said. “They’re getting after it, they’re working hard, they’re coach-able, so these are all qualities that any coach would want.”
