Which teams will be the toughest
competition for your squad this year?
Shabay named top District 4-6A teams and
“three perennial power teams” Arlington Bowie,
Arlington Martin, and North Crowley as some of
his team’s biggest returning competition in the
YMLA’s coach Lee listed Paschal as one of
the toughest teams on his district schedule,
along with O.D. Wyatt, Southwest, and Cedar
Hill. Within his district, Lee is keeping an eye on
North Crowley, Arlington Bowie, Arlington Martin,
Arlington Lamar, Arlington High, Arlington Sam
Houston, and Trimble Tech. “We play a tough
schedule to prepare our scholar-athletes for the
tough district schedule,” Lee said.
What would you consider a successful
season for your team this year?
Paschal missed the cut for the playoffs last
year, so Shabay is hoping his mostly-new team
will be able to show up against stronger district
rivals with older players.
Coach Lee wants the district title. “Once you
get to the playoffs, anything can happen,” he said.
What’s the best thing about Fort
Coach Shabay loves Fort Worth for its tradition
and commitment to the game. “Fort Worth is
known for great high school basketball and I
expect this year to be no different,” he said.
“The best thing about Fort Worth basketball
is the basketball knowledge of all the coaches
and the competitive atmosphere at every
game,” Lee said.
