Boy's Basketball

Coach Philosophy

Bexley's boys’ basketball program is intended to be a positive experience for all players who participate. Our philosophy is based on providing a high quality, competitive, hard-working, and character-driven program. The “team” is foremost over the individual and each player will be responsible to exhibit this quality at home, in practice and in games. All student athletes will: 
  • Conduct themselves in a way that will bring honor to their families, our program and Bexley High School
  • Perform at the highest level in the classroom at practice, games, and on campus
  • Place the goals of the team above individual desires.
  • In our basketball family, we will adhere to the following tenets.
  • We will have AMBITION toward a noble goal. 
  • We will have ADAPTABILITY in any presented situation. 
  • We will possess RESOURCEFULNESS to aid in our judgment. 
  • Our determined effort will be governed by our inner FIGHT. 
  • We need to stand close with FAITH, to help us through our challenges. 
  • We need to show SINCERITY for our circles of friends. 
  • Our HONESTY must shine through in both words and our actions. 
  • Our RELIABILITY will help us to create respect. 
  • Our INTEGRITY and purity of intention is essential. 
  • We will have PATIENCE; good things take time.
