Key Returnees
Seniors Joey Flasco (4.1 ppg), Peyton Wolfe (7.2 ppg, 1.4 spg) and Chance Mustake (6.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg) all return for Crestview. Senior 6’4 forward Dalton Palmer is slated to be in the starting lineup while junior guard Scott Murray should see plenty of minutes this winter. A large sophomore class features Jude Riffle, Austin Brodigan, James Fitzgerald, Stephen Barr, Jeremy Miller, Max Paskevitch, Wyatt Woodring, and Justin Collins.

Outlook
Crestview seeks to rebound from a tough 2015-16 season without the likes of Eli McCallum (11.7 ppg, 7.2 rpg) and Aaron Muntean (12.2 ppg, 7.7 rpg). Coach Miller indicates, “The keys will be coming together as a team and playing unselfishly even though they have not played as a unit very much. The youth of our squad will be an early hurdle as we look to find their role. Our practice work ethic is a real strength for the upcoming season.”
