Following last seasons’ 11-9 record and failing to qualify for the State tournament, coach B.J. Joseph was hoping to get off to a fast start this year. Unfortunately the Buccaneers are finding themselves battling adversity, even before the season has started. Milford has already lost some key players due to their failure to qualify academically. “It is a shame that we have lost students because of grades, it is a tough blow to take even before the season has begun,” Joseph said.

Adding to the tough start are injuries to key players including Tikeace Harris and Shymer Hanzer, setting up a rough start to the season. This situation is one that the team will have to work hard to overcome. “This is going to be a challenge for everyone, it’s a time when guys will have the opportunity to prove what they are made of,” Joseph said. While Milford will match up well with their first five players, it’s the lack of depth that will present a problem. “We will have a talented starting lineup but after that it becomes a huge question mark,” commented Joseph.

Milford will be up against the odds this year but that doesn’t mean they will be feeling sorry for themselves. “We are going to give it all we’ve got this season, each and every game,” Joseph added. “We will still set our sites on the State tournament, that’s where we want to be when all is said and done.”

In addition to Milford looking for leadership from Harris when he returns from injury, the team is hoping that Jason Parker can step up and be a key contributor. Milford also welcomes back Jalen Stevens who transferred to and from Seaford. The Buccaneers will play their first three games on the road, prior to hosting Sussex Central in the home opener Thursday, December 13 at 6:15 pm.
