Leslie County Eagles look to play fast for their upcoming season

HYDEN, Ky. (WYMT) - The Leslie County Eagles are under new leadership this season with Justin Rice stepping in to take over the program.

Last year the Eagles went 15-9 overall.

This year, the Eagles say they look to play small ball and will play a fast-paced game.

"You're going to see a lot more help-side defense, getting to the ball more. Rebounding, and getting faster and guarding," said Nick Wilson.

"Our team goal is to just speed people up and to play fast-paced ball," said Randall Brock.

"Pace, I feel like the pace was the biggest thing with us, we are obviously undersized, everyone knows that," said Luke Lewis. "We just want to be faster than everyone else."

"Our JV team last year was really good, beat some really good teams and this summer we beat some really good teams," said head coach Justin Rice. "This summer, we played four games within three points, against teams within our region so we feel like we are going to be solid and we are going to be okay. There are just some things that we have to work on like my kids said, like dictating the pace."
