Eaton Boys basketball looks forward to their upcoming (18-19) season to bounce back from their tough season last year. The boys started out their season playing in the Northern Colorado Roundup, where they tallied their first three wins of the season, defeating Gunnison, Basalt, and The Academy. The boys now start their season with a 3-0 record.

This years team consists of three seniors, three juniors, and three sophomores, “The perfect balance to start our season with,” said junior Bryce Leafgren. The seniors this season include Mason Willadsen, Cody Kessel, and Harrison Zeller. Mason Willadsen said, “All of the seniors need to be ready to step up as leaders this year, we are ready to give it our all on every possession, and expect the same from the rest of the program.” Coach Dean Grable tells his team that he is looking for the player that is ready to step up in every situation.

The boys currently stand as the 28th team in the state, and look to rise their ranking as the season progresses.  Although many of the boys are looking forward to their games against Sterling, Resurrection Christian, and Platte Valley, coach Grable said, “the only game we need to look forward to is the next one on the schedule.”

The boys will play their first home game against Bishop Machebeuf on December 6, and will follow up with the four-pack against Highland at home. Girls playing first, with the boys following up shortly.
