Tyler Posey is the new boy’s basketball coach at Maumelle Charter and he’s ready to get rolling.
The Falcons have already begun play but he noted that last year’s record was 9-20 as Maumelle Charter adjusted to the rigors of 3A play.
This season, they’re in the same conference and have some eye-popping games outside of league play with the likes of Little Rock Central on the schedule.
Posey noted that Carter Davis and Dylan Ferguson are returning starters and he said that “Daylon Thomas, Ethan Polite, and Kennon Johnson” are players to watch. The three are all freshmen and “ that should bring a huge boost to our squad.”
As for the season, “we feel with our team we are in a position to make some noise in 3A,” Posey said. “One of our team goals is to make the state tournament and get 20 wins.”
He added, “we have a good mix of upperclassmen and young kids that will help us develop our program while meeting our goals this year. The leadership of Carter Davis and Mason Corrigan is crucial for us and they do a great job in holding our team accountable. We are excited to get to the season tipped off and show off the work these student athletes have put in.”
Posey played college basketball at Ouachita Baptist and has a master's degree from Arkansas State.
He previously was an assistant at Bryant High School and was also the head coach of the freshmen team there.
