The Road To Success


The Palmer Men’s basketball team is already starting skill work and conditioning for their season that is right around the corner. With their talented numbers and fast style of play, the team expects to be playing for a 5A state championship at the Denver Coliseum for the 23 – 24’ playoffs.


Head Coach Eric Trujillo states that “In all honesty, I expect to be a top 5 team in the 5A class in Colorado. I have a few worries but believe that if we put in the work and focus on the common goal, we will be one of the top teams in 5A.” Last year the team averaged a scoring of 67 points per game. Going 14 and 11, the team just made it over a .500 percent winning record. The terrors also had a team average of a 31% 3 point percentage. Although these stats show good numbers, the Terrors expect much more for the upcoming season. 


“The biggest thing we need to do to have a successful season is to stay in the gym, work as much as we possibly can, and bond together as teammates and friends.” Claims Senior Dai’Juan Nunley. Nunley decided to move from Texas to come play for the Terrors. This summer the team played in various tournaments and Nunley showed nothing less than that he is ready for varsity minutes this year with the Terrors. 


Being already dedicated, and getting to work in the preseason with defensive conditioning and skill work, the teams first game is only a little over a month away. The team will hold tryouts in the next few weeks to mold their team to the best that it can be. 


Captain Jackson Weber claims “I expect to continue improving as a team that loves each other and plays for each other. I also expect to continue to lead the team in assists and help everyone grow together.” Weber is a great leader on and off the court and really focuses on holding his teammates accountable. Last year, The returning captain averaged 13 points per game, and led the team in assists averaging 4.4 assists per game. This year Weber expects to better push himself, as well as his teammates even harder, in order to be successful.


The Terrors ended last year’s season by getting knocked out in the sweet 16 against Windsor and expect nothing less this year. Now, the Terrors Varsity are buckled down and ready for the ride to win the 23’ – 24’ 5A state championship!
