Coach: Burtchal Griffin

2019-20 Record: 17-14

The Warriors return to Class 3A this year and welcome back two players that have been selected for VYPE TOP 100 status this year in forward Jallen Ellis (6-4, Sr.) and guard Chris Thompson (5-9, Sr.). Coach Burtchal Griffin calls Ellis, who averaged 10 points and eight rebounds a game last season his best all-around player while Thompson returns as the scoring leader averaging 13 points a game in 2019 and is the glue of the team according to Griffin. In addition, the Warriors have two more guards who will see action in Nathan Mullin (5-10, Sr.) who averaged seven points a game and is the team’s best outside shooter and Jay Matthew (5-9, Sr.) who put in eight points a game last year and is versatile enough to play either guard position. Griffin lists several players that fans will see in the paint for the Warriors including Johnathan Wharry (6-3, Jr.), Braden Oliver (6-2, So.), Raydon McCoungh (6-3, So.), Trevor Smith (6-2, So.), and Caden Coursey (6-2, So.). Griffin also his eye on freshman guard Dillon Parker who Griffin predicts will be a VYPE pick by the time he is a junior. SOMETHING TO WATCH - Offensively Griffin says his team will play to which positions are strongest while on defense he emphatically says, “The Idabel Warriors will always play man-to-man defense.” Griffin is optimistic that with players like Ellis and Thompson, the Warriors will advance father into the playoffs this year.
