And and so happy that your feeling geez took a check on everything every. Every a year and a half to get a check out yeah and my wife make sure I make that check up so. And all good mean they tell me I'm overweight but as I said it's the season. This has its our coaches hit it and I say you don't know or realize what time I get home at night at nationals out I'm but I'm healthy I appreciate the -- spots and yet in all the prayers I went out from my mind our prayers and prayer the family members and I always tell the kids you can't get through something like that with help great people in your life. Logo the worst thing you can never hear in life is sometimes going to lead to action scene you have cancer yeah I mean how do you face that adversity. You know how you handle that we'll get you through those tough times and we try to related to two sports even though it's Nat. Mean to. As critical as sports but. We faced adversity passed through our games throughout the year and you got to fight through you can't worry about those things you think you're different culture than you were prior to that absolutely I am. Because you put things in a lot more perspective now you know. I'm games are games that are. They're not war we can't we can't think it like that train because. Arm you're battling something a lot worse than just your opponent out there are so you get a better perspective you know your wife and her first and Dana Dana and and you have the to kids Kayla seven in a daughter Mike I'm sorry my son -- seven in my daughter Michaela five so that's awesome absolutely. They're blessed to have another child even after this so yeah. That's I'm toros I want to look good for us you know while you get so many great things to look for too. And he's Dana listened to they've and so I know she's at dance class in the dark is awesome with general IOC there's a special place and haven't. For coaches wives Agassi and you know whatever we've that because they put up with a lot with a us. You know I reduced my 35 year I don't know how you do it hi my Hoffman I don't know how she tells it just Snow White everyone swallowed. You'll we have an early practice some home at night. And it seems like those in the nights and crabby and spent I don't know if you go like she's probably shaking her head yeah you're right. But I'm so happy that that you allowed me to bring that time up. And it found that's that ventured you know healthy and everything is going while. Let's talk if we can about said the so creek basketball team. Meant the could hear. The idea Goodyear I mean I don't think we've. Inside of us I think we we expected out this tech possibly happen that's what you work for all off season. To do it so it's not really a surprise to us however how we handle this is a little different. We're used to being. Hunted I mean we're used to being the ones they got to hunt other people now were being hunted by our other point so we got to handle how we practice how we take. Adverse seeing games and and we're learning through it last night was it an extremely tough game second time around in our conference. And or to act notion at Kenosha Bradford day at four days to prepare forest and like I said to the guys afterwards they said you know for that for maybe the first time now I had an Oak Creek in in my time there. Now teams are scouting you guys it's their game playing for you guys and and I think that's special because of what. But you guys have done and former players that maybe have moved on they started this all right it's it's not just this group. You know you made that comment about being the hunted rather than the people that are hunt team were going through that as wall a Martin Luther. You know we young would be committee can last night in. In a really there could pan out coach guises and you know one of the best one of the best absolute and they. Look you can look at their record right now and thank. Case not a great record there really cut. And really well coached. But now all what we've done and this group has done is they've put their name you know it you know now in McCourt were right there. And so now teams you see a bunch more coaches film and watch and and you know it it is a different feeling for some of these guys are Martin Luther. It. They you know we've only got a couple guys that were in the program a few years ago but Ito within the school basketball program has struggle Woolner and and the corals program is to an unbelievably while. They beat no sustained chose with the McDonald's all American at the united they play at Dominican tonight I think it's fourth third and so if you get a chance keep. To Dominican watch the good they're good girls the mighty gut lady spartans. And that skid of your really good game but what's happened similar up an oh create Mike is that. Now teams are art are saved. Law iron hole but now we gotta now we got to start to scout Martin Luther and try to take away what they do and that's that you guys are going through. Same thing here you know and then. The journal sentinel zen a game asking her couple games asking for quite quotes after the game in and how they read those things in the paper you know in. In those kids are 15161718. Year olds and you know I never been necessarily in that spot Lleyton how you handle and how their friends you know talked to them a little differently. So we gotta do as coaches we try to bring them down and realize that you know hey it's one game at a time one day at a time right one possession. At a time you you can't let the noise from outside affect what were doing. As a team in. And that's. That's what we face every day and we have to keep reminding them and they got to keep believing in the process that we're doing coach how deeper you guys where we don't go very deep we'd we go about eight deep I'm in and sometimes you shorten it to seventh. I'm I think down this stretch here. Second goal around we're gonna have to start put in some more people in. Because they're preparing every day just like every ready else I and that weren't one of the again. Is that it really could jump pointed on the advantages and at Martin Luther right now. Worked a world less than he adds we were 1110. And improve in one kid right now fight hard to get more playing time. And so at practice. They're going at it half. And then if a kid a struggled will bidder gets in foul trouble. Talking to people that have been around the Martin Luther program in the past it's it looked Durbin years that we've been really good six good seven. Good. But you get to hater and I mean. And now all of a sin your eater nine. Yea you know eight or nine guy he's putting up fifteen. Where did that can so that kind of thing that coach guys laissez Sid look. The way the year's gone first we're gonna take away your top 12 maybe three but watch your 456 they're gonna go off tonight and we had. We had a couple kids said that had good games last night that maybe struggled here you know throughout the year so I think that depth is really bad or advantage X. And and down the stretch is gonna really be down to your advantage on the legs get lulled to sore. You know you gotta just things in practice but when you can have practiced Sam have competition after competition and competing for those spots that's outstanding continually get better from. He before get your break what's your background words growth were to a school I actually grew up in a small town call concerning Wisconsin in the northern part banker credits I'm sure everyone I can and o's were Kravitz is up there sure but mag. I was telling guys my graduating class is 37 how. It's so everyone knew my name. And every I knew where we're doing we deem never grocery store right I was just towns the guys the other night that we had to had to travel vote twenty miles an article or grocery store go to the movies or anything funny where I'm eagle for that. But I don't oak I don't which is about 2520 meant to twenty minutes away so yeah. So we kind of just hunker down and our homes watch movies and what we did we were now in the backyard and we've played hoops or he threw that football around their played catch you know we didn't. We came play video games want to attack different upbringing that you had to and then the kids. Here it that were coaching and hope for them that sounds really board for Danny right now. I would love to goats are owed more to go there and hang out for about a three months yeah and just read a book and you know why and and maybe do look I don't do any ice vision but I'd watch the boys. Third tour of the the ice fish and and and from there where I thought there are you from there I went to Madison three every massive and then I was the bass while manager for. Four years under Dick you sell I was there during the final four run. And dad that was a life changing experience. Being at Madison learning. Not only. The game of basketball. But I truly think Jack coach Bennett proudly teaches the game of life better than in many out there and Datsyuk. I still have contact with him. And actually their final four year run. Tony Bennett was and it. A manager and journal team in. And he was my roommate on the road trips while sell I got to have a relationship with Tony and and I watch Virginia all the time in fact my wife and I went out there last year to the Virginia North Carolina game we had a whole week off. To give the kids option we flew out there and set Centre court for. Of that unbelievable game in. Talk about a wonderful family that has done so much for basketball credible in the state Wisconsin and throughout and then for what ball Rhein did take carry on. I'm lasting you know. Last impressions of just who I am as a man is from coach geno I. Do a show called faith in his own. And we have had guys like Tony Dungy and Bobby Bowden in Mark Jackson a pastor Daryl strawberry. And we had Dick Bennett yet and he was I was more nervous. To two guys show and I told them that you sir Levy was. Are you kidding I shouldn't a coach. I have such a fan and I have so many Dick Bennett stories for you. And he's so what hope they're good IC coach I had put chauvinist so that I think about it I didn't our Tony dodge you know wasn't nervous I've so onerous and you show. Pity goes why just take a breath relax a Coke and it was a great show. It really was and I'm of the big fanning his. It's funny because we did a show I'm a coach's show we're doing it with that eighties Roni brought my son and he brought camp. And we're doing coach and our sons. And I reached out he was at Washington State. Com and SI decent look he doesn't do interviews during the season and it's who would you tell month from Milwaukee. We're doing a show about plane for our fathers. They could just see venue five million she said and Lisa what he does that NIC just ask them shields hole please. She came back says he'll give you when or if you want it because he EEE says that's a great show he came on and told some unbelievable sourced. The one that stuck out with me. And I read about this in a book called coaching or stunt. He would he would after practice. And cream bay he would he would shoot for twenty minutes. Extra now because he needed to all the time or because he wanted to but he wanted to players a lot crew if they want to yell about their coach. He came twenty minutes Duke is at the end of they that was his father and he told this story was it just an incredible those are good eight those are great names through and in this world maps. Little League you know and I think coaching your son is probably the most difficult thing in today's to do on because it's a no win situation in. And sometimes I know people think playing town they play they're sound fair it's. I think I've watched in that in the past and watched you know it's her own Ian and you're you're tougher on your kids because it's in the back your mind I see it yet even youth. You know today in a cold. It's my son's three years at calvary Baptist we'd 67 kids in the whole school. It's seven boys and about call this the Caucasian invasion which is what and played but it was the three best years. There were says little tough parts in beginning but the best three years for me. And we still you know what and then at the end you edited out all the bad stuff and the only stuff you talk about as a could stuff we get to break. Will continue this is good Mike Jozy im a big fan years the head basketball coach at all creek. Thirteen in two all creek. Thirteen in two.

And I'm telling me if you're coats listen that segment. Read part of that book and this is good he's a soccer coach. But this is a buyout.

To always remember him and doubt pray for his Fam like at 1130 mark Millar will join us was sports dot net. It is sad time for for report cards may or mid season. We'll find out who was what surprises what disappointments and end will talk to mark about some of the the the teams throughout the state. That he thinks have have stepped their game up and some that may be of disappointing removal but I gotta believe that Oak Creek is one that's not he's gonna say he'll look. They're awfully good and that's southeast conference Mike it's a weird conference football you kinda. It's up it's a football concept security recessed so football conference. But would you look at some of the basketball teams especially from the receive the area there's some great Basque. Well not a single grave that's going great talents I mean here every night airplanes some ups serious athletes that can jump by the Jim neck and run the floor. And data. Coach what has happened to see you look in the bottom of the southeast conference and basketball. And it's Indian trail Kenosha Bradford no rush trapper. And it's used it to me that before Indian trail came about Bradford a trap for a pretty competitive and almost all sports. Lately even in football Bradford down a little bit trapper downed and I'm wondering how much did the Indian trail. Palm school has impacted the other one. CA you know I don't know a lot of that information but my assistant coach my JV coach actually is. Used to coach yet and being assistant coach for Damon James at Bradford pigs and like David and do our job a craft is he still his his his kids out live down there and he coaches and East Coast and right now and he knows all the scoop running canosa schools and he always says he's like you know since Indian trails came in the mix. These kids are more spread out all you know the talent level just goes here one here one there one there and so forth and he thinks that's part of the reason I'm not an expert in it right I just gonna have to realize that and I coach hill into it. It's also effect in were seen when you think about the size of recede and you think that there's three public schools. And then three private schools. It's it's you know it's spread out yet received perjured than right now best human or else for us and voted. Received sync cats hers is cute and they're really good and young. And that you look in your conference were seen coral it. At the top at six and one then we're seeing case overseen park right right after you know a lot of talent to recited to. I mean Seymour it is it actually they're junior aren't I mean there. There at athletic. And they've kind of learned how to be patient offensively they've kind of figured out how we got to work it around working around really absolutely and T cells get them Jason's daddy got him playing the way he. He had thinking needs to plan this year I think you know that's the beauty of coaches sometimes you know. The great ones can adjust in say hey this is what I got here and that. And this team we're gonna have to do in if you can get your kids to buy into that. As and that's wonderful but yet there there's significantly younger then. And so were up there where we had seniors but they're younger and then park hall we you know ballpark I mean there. Talent the lower since surprise or five and three conference. Yeah I'm not I am I you know I think everyone is but I think talking to Jim in. He's had sending out his dad passed away in the because I didn't know that and you know I think last week and last year he was in and and we had a dates Brothers who don't. And down Manny cares how about those he is young guy Sinead loves those kids and yeah in the beginning when we played him the first time he had just gotten back from the hospital. Right before his pregame tock and he says hey you snake I may have to leave it. We can't please stand and in so he's had to go through that in so that's definitely in his heart and then. The biggest things you know your seniors are very important soup and that the older days where is their leader on that team. And net preen Ismet talent he was there defender in and you can't says say enough about senior leadership and I think they kinda held some of the the the order in that and cell. I think they're trying to figure that out right now and it's hard to replace leadership. What's funny is somewhere in there and he brought posts two guys Wear them in the senior. Was a spokesperson. He you know why I play has set on up and up with a microphone in front of them and he was not nervous he carried himself like it like America. And the younger he he kind of took his lead from a from his older brother and he was very nice is really smoke. Art and mark kid man I think they're like 354 point oh students on their they're great human beings they're great young people they give back to their community. I community there family is wonderful. But you don't you can't say enough about older Brothers older senior leadership on a basketball team innate out of kind of figure that out but. They're they are scary thought yeah I've you know or if you going to the seedings we haven't really gone into that. I went want to play now and sell paid show Wednesday since your senior oriented make sure if Europe twenty wooden for Mexico. Pitcher taking guys off the bench it's payback but it's an accurate net. Hey I view the team we haven't talked about is is Franklin. And 32 in conference. In three overall. Nah again another team that it's a football school but Tyler student could jobs that colleges and does an outstanding job. I'm actually had a heart breaker I don't think this is update they actually lost a heartbreaker to seeing case last oh they did they did sell. I'm 82 to eighty in overtime rule Tyler puts his heart and soul. I wind into that program I betcha a dollar Tyler hasn't slept yeah I'm I'm sure in fact he just text me. If I hit it if I present the game last hour had someone film in the game so he does an outstanding job preparing his kids. And dated nice starter IG peak adorned in a nice little up on thing and then. And fox sports you know and down. He's gonna he's gonna get them to play as hard as he possibly can because they take after his work ethic as well and and he's got them to believe in and it's not just a football school he wants to be a basketball school embrace our school yeah it's very different and I know that good baseball and I was gonna ask you that. Because your similar to were Tyler as. And that is all creek is known as a football school it. As far back is Joseph cause absolutely no football and baseball and rest easily so suits and dress things rank number one in that. In the area as well so saw that you don't as a coach. You want it to be your program. But I've had to adjust in the new year after Justin you have to work through things and I think it's just wonderful and we haven't talked about but. You know when I got there recently you know you one play one sport and I just I'm not a firm believer in in players playing one sport. That's why I'm very proud that Max double plays three sports he's he's great at all three sports for Franklin. You know in Jacobs nine his starting quarterback you'll football as his love and true passion for what he gives our basketball team. Arm is wonderful so it was very great great that he was able to is to stick it out would basketball play with his guys and in able to handle not being the star player like US and the football team but he can handle a different role in the Basque team and I think that's gonna carry him. A lot further in double row. He did last question for get your break up TAD very seldom do you look at a roster. Anymore and see more than a handful of seniors. Because we have two seniors by us and and both really good guys neither one gets a lot of playing time but never late for practice. Are ardent won't jump of any drill you asked him to jumpin. And and I find that sad it has -- kids are like look if I'm not gonna I'm not gonna give that tenth time commitment. If I'm not going to see the for a lot. But there's so many lessons he's Q Slorc. Mean you're never going to. Being you have the president of a company year you get everyone has a different role right in life and you gotta be able to handle that role so I you know I I. I've really Troy. Tried to appreciate the players that every day have to show up to practice. They got to work hard just like everybody else but they don't not necessarily get out on that basketball court and in last saint date we in that in a dogfight every game we had the year that they are on the bench cheering. Help and everybody else sounding we will get through that result those guys at that energy and the bench in every game press. We're gonna talk about them Kazan look pitcher roster for the second time today. You're right yeah there's a lot seniors have slowed we're gonna talk about those kids and we'll name these guys because I. It's not just that first five and that that. Surely makes a team go we will continue our conversation might Joseph season head basketball coach at Oak Creek. On the other side this is the Wendy's farce he puts high school basketball coaches show presented. By your local pick and save stores and it's portrait of 1057 FM the fan. And Reyes. It. Use. Yeah welcome back. To Wendy's mercy twist I've given you guys coaching this and it's absolutely guys wrote that when now you can use that one if you if you feel hot. Welcome to the way these birds includes high school -- what coaches show. Present by your local pick and save stewards what to say to a young man and three takes a three. When he should never take you three you're going to put him back yet that's who we talked about. It worked you take another and we want to share that on line and and know there's a good note period worse but it was. He how he got the point I'll tell you that he got the point. Our special guests who retired two hours head basketball coach at Oak Creek high school. In the assistant coach for the first greed team where. Over here it's in New Berlin park and rec that's awesome. What's now it's just that one day experience because I got fired after. Your son for you guys sound like a bench your own kid you vets have did (%expletive) I did and Jimmy made a bad pass. And I'd let him know he made a bad pass and then he gave me attitude so and to. At a send out the next Simien. Now you just rising to sit in the stands and don't get that attitude from your says Sam I hated it I think it's from my says the family and she says it's truly are signs she's lets me know that so. That's all sort through your work throughout. Hey look you that your roster when you said look we're loaded with seniors man you're you're not Kitna. I you've got a big rosters like kids did you keep a lot well you know week we have wheat we kept thirteen in and we bring up three sophomores to get their experience at least sang game nights and and they practiced with us about once and a week I'm in that would be quince too low. Zach Mitch enjoy tell ski on those guys are sophomores in and there are really just to get them prepared to see what it's going to be like. On to see where it's going to be like at the next level for that next stage for them so if I'm reading this right then you've got twelve under thirteen kids are seniors now that's there's some. Rosters from last year on their inaction piano but we actually an eight seniors okay. And we play seven of eight out of thirteen you know yeah so that's it's going to be a long senior night small MySpace is it. I'm not going to be you want to send your tonight and you know as coaches we never look ahead but we worker yeah. I'm sure that you thought man next. Yeah we said you're gonna commodity this is a basketball yet. This is or you know down we teach that and everyone reminds us you know hey you know but you know a lot of these lot of people said this year. With this group. Well you lost harassing clear he wouldn't UN opted Minnesota crooks and is doing extremely well averaging twenty points a game as a freshman for a while could for him all forty minutes a game. I am but they had to listen to a lot of people say all you you guys are you lost your stirring score on your point guards are in you're not doing games and. You know and if you just if you just continue to work the process leaving your coach is one game at a time one day at a time one possession time. We'll get through itself. You know that's what you know as long as you can get the most out of your players I think as a coach every night you can go home rest rest your head in your pool and if you ever sleep. And in say. But we did well he lets talk about some of these seniors and we're gonna have time at the end of the beds and the show if we don't. It's all of them but let's talk about wee tart but Jacobs yacht a little bit and and everybody knows what a good athlete he is oh start about a couple of these other kids. I do yet averaging twenty point two points a game he's really kinda stepped up his game. 66. He sometimes he play probably plays all positions sometimes he brings the ball. I sometimes he plays in the post he can step it from outside and knock down threes. He's he can really talk too because he's our pickets are used inept through the week. And we'll talk to Newman will pits so looks if we can't omelets get a few there was errors are always the low he's 62 he's a senior. He's averaging like ten point seven points per game but at any given night he can. He came in he can fill it up if if he needs to insult when teams are starting to face guard jrue there he steps up so he said ranges of twenty points per game. While last sank he had five points per game but he had 66 assists last night so we did in different ways he really a unique player. He knows that you know bass ball extremely well. And he can light it up from outside and when he asked. And end of sea island does pretty well he's averaged about eighty game. On four yeah that's a nice trio of seniors you know and in net and end the best thing is like even last night you know Jacob didn't score as many last saint. By he had nine rebounds. Guy he had to defend someone much more or more physical them but he behind him up and he played extremely well he also had four assists last night. It ended two kids last night that. You know they if you look and and they only average three point Sixers Nathan the key he's our starting point guard. He had he had ten points last night. Knocked down two Big Three pointers and knocked down for free throws down the stretch four for four we could use him over at our depth and talent here and net another kid Matt passed you know he he struggled in the beginning. Of the year but he came in last night knocked down a big couple big threes. And and play great defense self. He had ten points and he if you looked he was averaging three point so we've had people step up you know where in the past. It was just one man show so you have an end last year that was your point guard gap and punt into how does a kid like me think come may and then. On and now he's a guy that's got to follow him like that you know and that's. That's not easy it's its -- I you know like I sock it to me it's 90% mental I mean what you do is ninth resentment you can go work on your game you can go work and your shots you can go pump iron. But if you don't have it up here right I mean all that Ashley and her point absolutely you know and so he had to hear the noise and all my goodness you don't have a point guard this year and so. Internally I EE took that you know to heart he's gonna work on net and he knows his role. You know I'm going to distribute the basketball. And they get other people the ball I'm gonna screen bodies not when you navy and act down free throws or are shot I'll do I just not a score first guy. And that that's kind of what this team needs I am we have a point curt over Martin Luther that I men. I I can't say enough about this kid tree carry ten and he has sophomore. And it's interesting because heat I think he thought last sagged. He didn't have that could have a game. And if you look at his stats he is percentage for shooting wasn't great but everything else the kid one turnover against Dominican yet. That's head chest you know what he and I think we gave them 45 seconds of a break you put a barricade kids. He's do you there's such a comfort level with young man like that on the floor makes everybody batters. He we're gonna get to a break our pick insisting they have through week I drew yet key. Is that as yet not yet kept he is averaged about twenty game four point oh student scored 31. I was a CTU and I combined. Put horrible winter we didn't get 31.

Retaliate skate awfully good season for Earl creek endowed targeted coach shows he said look we had. And the idea that we're going to be pretty good seniors been through it. And the difference between being the team that's two in the hunt team. And the team that's been hunted is quite a bit it today is a difference in an I agree with him on that you feel a difference is forest other teams getting prepared. Odd to defend not only you but to oh creek. Oh. Yeah we definitely another week given us thereabouts. The second time around is that going to be tough just because it. Or on top so it is in everybody's best shot. Yeah I did it say well but today I would think with you might as senior leadership that this team has you guys are ready for that. He drew you're getting some some at some looks right now from some teams like saint nor burdened Carroll and open on rip then. Did you have a preference whether you want to stay close to home or maybe goal Wilbert further away. Naw about. Distances of a big deal for me. Oh that's good.

Of fuel and Ali you know halfway through you're probably feeling really good about where your act correct. Where we're sure. Coach what's the best part enters game. Well I think his ability to step outside. Six sick at 66 is a tough match up. And then for the ability to play down low. As well at 660 if you're gonna put teams have to decide who's gonna guard so is it gonna I am I'm gonna putting. You know maybe a a wing on him a 63 guys Arum I gonna put maybe a 67 or 66 guy so he's got to take advantage and then. He can get to the rack as well mean self. You know one when we're kind of milk an out the clock you were kind of running in there that teams are switching their defense is which has have been happening lately because we do a lot of screening. You know I there's some serious miss matches yeah our current. And he's finding those mismatches well. What what's if you had to say hey look. I wish I wish he he worked harder at this area of his game what would you sent. It put me on this but. Joseph what would I say an area that you need to work harder. Go back and you post some mules tougher he's just try that element or has got a great post loopy he really he's worked on it.

Did it are you looking forward to to that next level are you right now in the high school mode. Where you're gonna try to make this season Wes is long's it it can't. I'm definitely trying to make this last long as we can we talk about it last but I that we don't want a you don't want it and any faster than past do all of us. After the guys went out last night we are talking. This is the best arm our allies are here this basketball team after this it's not going to be better. That's kind of disappointing but at the same time just gives us a little bit more motivation to work harder route. And I love that answer that's that's a Smart answer right now I don't know he wrote that down but that was you know it is a perfect answer construe there's a lot of kids over the years.
