This team will win the league and maybe make a run to state this year

Waverly will have to replace Cade Marquez, who was an excellent scorer for the Tigers. As far as the SOC II race, WHS will be a fight with Wheelersburg for the league title. As far as making a run to the state, SE D2 teams have come up short time and again in the regionals, losing to either Central District or East District teams. I have to think that trend will continue until proven otherwise.

You may be right, but let's not forget Oak Hill is returning SOC 2 Champions, as well as having 4 Starters back (All Seniors) With what looks like another kid getting ready to help out. The Oaks will be very good and seem to have the Tigers answer over the last 10 years. (Norm vs. Travis Record??)

baseball16: You're absolutely right about Oak Hill.......somehow I forgot about them. They do have a lot coming back, and maybe another transferring in. I would say right now that the Oaks are the SOC II favorite, with Wheelersburg (handed Oak Hill their only SOC II loss) and Waverly as formidable challengers. Oak Hill has a better chance of making a long tournament run than Waverly simply because D3 in 2017-2018 looks to be somewhat down, especially with Fairland probably going to D2. The regional title for a SE D2 team has been a very difficult hurdle to jump over. I can't really tab the Oaks as a strong state contender even with all they have coming back.......that loss to sub .500 Southeastern Ross in the district final makes me somewhat hesitant to bang the drum for the Oaks to be a Final 4 team. I know that loss to the Panthers was last season, but it does put some doubt in my mind about OH.

From what I hear, Waverly will have a nice addition to the coaching staff this year. Kyle Miller, former head coach of Western, will be joining the team. I think this is great for the program, Kyle did good things at Western and is a great basketball mind to have around.

From afar D2 in SE Ohio appears loaded. Friends back home say the Tigers will be competitive in 2017-18, but still are long shot for the SOC and the district.

Maybe to win either, yeah, but they should be super competitive in the SOC and at least reach the District Semifinals in D2

Someone better let the folks at the convo know so they can order another coaches chair! Should make the ratio 1-1 now :lol:

With Jaquan Williams G(6'3''), Shabazz Thomas G(6'4''), and Andre Akers F (6'8'') coming in for this season they should be good. These guys are some talented players and could get the team to state.

Tbh. if you want my honest opinion. There is no way that waverly is even a contender to win the S.O.C. let alone have a chance at state.

The person you are referring to saying that Waverly has a chance to make state is being a little silly I believe, considering the players he is mentioning do not even play for the Tigers.

You’ve not seen Williams, Thomas or Akers? They are the real deal!!

Waverly always seems to have good talent every year, but they can never really get over the hump. I'm not saying they need a new coach by any means, but when you have that much talent year after year, 2nd place in the SOC would be expected at least. With all 10 of their coaches, I would think that they would have a better record and success than what they have had in the conference.
