MIDDLESBORO, Ky (WYMT)- The Middlesboro Yellow Jackets chasing after the 13th Region All-A and the district again.

Middlesboro finished the year 17 and 14.

The Jackets did graduate 6 seniors from last year's team, however, this year Lewis Morris's team will have 8 upperclassmen including 4 Seniors looking to continue last year's success.

"Our goals are to make it back to the All-A and then proceed on to go win the district but we are going to have to have the right mindset and toughness," said Trey Brock.

"Just have the right mindset. Just want it more than they do," said TJ Patterson.

"We got to get to practice. Work hard and let our underclassmen step up this year because we lost a lot," said Jabri Kyle.

"We just gotta keep pushing. Make them work hard. Stay on top of them. Make sure they give it their all at all times," said Jordan Davis.

"A lot of the kids we had last year got to play quite a bit so it's not that they don't have any playing time. They just gotta come in and fill those gaps," said Lewis Morris.
