Santa Fe: No more target on back...
By Robert Przybylo
Had a chance for an unusually long conversation with Santa Fe boys coach Shawn Schenk. I had a lot to ask, and he had some real good, intriguing answers.
Schenk has a tradition of keeping his kids relaxed Monday of area week.
“We were at HeyDay (Entertainment Center) in Norman,” Schenk said Monday night. “We’ll practice hard Tuesday and Wednesday, but the kids always look forward to this. As long as they enjoy it, it’s worth it.”
Still think it’s puzzling the Wolves are No. 1. It just feels like they’re not that good…but they are. One of the biggest reasons is how deep this team is. Schenk said they can go 13-15 kids deep. And take a look at this sophomore class.
Three of them (Michael Onuoha, Terrell Savala and Phoenix Bills) missed significant portions of this season for a variety of reasons. But they’re all back, and they’ve been huge.
Also asked Schenk about ‘road intensity.’ That was a bad way to phrase it, and Schenk said it better than I did. It’s not so much Santa Fe hasn’t been intense on the road, but it hasn’t kept its poise as well on the road.
