Martello likes potential of Gators

“Last year, it was four more seniors and we are kind of at the bottom of that little trough there. Now, I think we’ve got some really good middle school kids coming up and I’m really excited about that group. And I think this group of mostly juniors that we have this year is going to be pretty good.”

Baker has seemed to weather a down cycle and seems ready to climb back toward the upper half of a tough District 2-1A. But that district includes defending state champion Chipley and a Holmes County team that features senior post player Chris Walker, the No. 9 ranked recruit in the nation.

Early in the season, there is time to think big about what can happen as the year progresses.

“I really like the enthusiasm this year,” Martello said. “This year, we are only going to have two seniors and I see how enthusiastic they (the players) are about this season. They’ve put a lot of hard work into the off season so I think they have a lot of potential.”
