CAMPUS BOYS: Defensive-minded Colts look for more wins

The success of the Campus boys will have a lot to do with the success of Jack Charles, Jake Schuelke and Orenzo Brown.

The senior trio will have to be productive leaders if the Colts are to improve on a 6-15 season.

"The three of them know each other really well and play really unselfish together," coach Josh Axline said. "How they play will have a lot to say on how much success we have."

The Colts success last season had a lot to do with its defense. Campus held opponents to an average of 48 points. Axline knows that that type of effort will have to continue this season.

"Our kids really bought into defense last season and hopefully this group will do the same," Axline said. "We are struggling with it a little so far, but I believe we will figure it out."

While Campus did its best to keep opponents from scoring, it will have to increase it's own. Charles scored seven points a game for the Colts last season, but he will be needed to be more, Axline said.

""I think he just needs to be more consistent," Axline said. He had some big games for us last season, but wasn't a consistent scorer."

If the Colts can find consistent scoring, Axline thinks his team will do well.

"I think we will be undersized, but I think we will be improved from a year ago," Axline said.

Brown leads the team with 9.3 points per game. Teammates Wheeler and Dickey average about eight points each. Off the bench, South transfer Lani Martin, a transfer from South, should help add depth and even more playing experience.
