As the boys start their 2018-2019 basketball season, I had the opportunity to ask senior captain, Miles Mendes, a few questions. Miles has been on the boys Varsity team since he was a sophomore at Farmington High School. The first question I asked him was what they did to prepare during the off season. “During the off-season we have our JAQS program through the school and the basketball guys have what we call “basketball academy” which is just like a practice. Also, for a lot of the guys on our team, we play AAU which is a team not through the school and we play all over the country in front of college coaches. I also know a lot of the guys, including myself, take pride in getting themselves better every day so I went to Lifetime after JAQS at some point during the day. During the “off days” I would go and get shots up to stay ready, come season time,” Miles said. Another question I had for him was what it is like to be a captain of the Varsity team, and what expectations he is held up to. He replied with “Being a captain is a lot of responsibility and people look to you to know pretty much everything that is going on during the game and on the court. I enjoy having a lot of responsibility and pressure put on me because at the next level it is going to be like it is now…. times a hundred. But it prepares me well for that next step.” Lastly, I wanted to ask him what the goals were for the team this season. “A goal we have this season is to have a winning record and peak, as a team, come playoff time and make a run,” Miles said.
