COACH GEORGE PFEIFER ON THESE MOST RECENT SIGNINGS:
“We are very excited to bring Justin Fraser and Spencer Bishop into our program. There were a lot of schools throughout the northwest seeking their services. I was involved in coaching Justin in AAU back when he was a 5th grader almost until he graduated from high school – so our roots together run deep. Over the past two years I have witnessed Justin put on close to 20 pounds of muscle and am not surprised at all to find him as the best shooting guard in the NWAACC. Any time you shoot 45% from the 3-point line and make triple digits when you are doing it is impressive. Spencer brings us a crafty, tough- minded point guard. He is quick and pushes the ball hard. His stats are obviously impressive, however his mental approach to how he competes and plays is what makes him special. The more you watch him play the more you appreciate what he brings to the table; he is a winner.”
The Warriors graduated 5 players from this year’s team.
