After a 1-26 season last season and a 1-15 mark in conference play, the Jefferson Davis Community College Warhawk basketball team will begin play for the 2009-2010 season this Thursday on the road against Marion Military Institute.
JDCC shows 11 players on its roster this season, with only two returning players from last year’s squad.
One player that has really stuck out to Gainer has been 6-2, 170 lb. guard Kentrail Brown.
Marquis Williams (5-7, 165 lb. guard) and Jamey Goddin (6-2, 200 lb. guard) are other players Gainer noted. Goddin is a sophomore transfer from Northwest Florida.
Gainer said that Justin Burroughs (6-1, 185 lb. guard) has a chance to be one of the top offensive players in Alabama and possibly in the country.
Along with Burroughs, Gainer noted that returning player Logan Campbell (6-6, 210 lb. center) is showing good things.
One key return is former T.R. Miller Tiger Damien Jackson.
Jackson saw time with the Warhawks two seasons ago, although he did not play last season, but is back with the Warhawks for the 2009-2010 team.
Corey Redfearn, 6-3, 170 lb. guard, is another former Tiger.
Tra Felder, a 6-0, 170 lb. guard, works hard every day in practice for the Warhawks Gainer said, and is getting better and better.
Brandon McCloud, Dennis Miller, and Tramaine Elliott anchor out the Warhawks.
Those 11 make up JDCC’s current roster and Campbell, Burroughs, Jackson and Goddin are the team’s four sophomores.
As for the schedule, JDCC has 24 games scheduled with 13 being home and 11 away and 16 conference games.
JDCC’s first home game will be Thursday, Nov. 12 against Pensacola Christian College at 7 p.m. at Warhawk Gym.
