Looking to make their third trip in as many years to the state playoffs under Head Coach Chad Pittman, the Dawson County Tigers men’s basketball team began practicing in late October. Having graduated four starters last year (two of whom having scored more than 1,000 points in their careers) Coach Pittman acknowledged the challenges ahead. “Depending on how team chemistry and injury goes we would love to get at least one step further than last year as we continue to build the program here at Dawson and hopefully make it a consistent playoff team,” Pittman said. As the team’s only returning starter this year, junior Campbell Reed (who was third in scoring last season) is expected to take on more of a leadership role and will rely heavily on incoming transfer student Jasper Gibson, who lead Jefferson in scoring from the point guard position last year.
