Key Returnees
First-year head coach Nick Canterino will rely on a 10-12 man rotation. “We had a really good summer (with) a great turnout. The players really worked hard and came together as a team.”

Outlook
In late-April, Campbell Memorial High School announced that Nick Canterino would take over the boys’ basketball program. Canterino was a standout prep athlete at Girard nearly a decade ago. “I’m looking forward to working with this group of players,” says Canterino. “They push each other and make it fun to coach everyday. It’s going to be an exciting journey.” He takes over the Red Devils in his current position after watching last year’s group open the slate with 14-straight losses. For the season, Memorial was only able to post 50-points or more four times. Since their last outright division crown in 2009-10 (10-0 in the Blue Tier) -the Red Devils have only registered one winning season (overall 15-9 & conference 8-2) in 2013-14 (tied for National Tier).Take away that year (2013-14), the Devils have compiled an overall winning percentage of 29.8% (34-80) and a division mark of 26.9% (14-38) in five seasons (2010-13; 2014-16).
