Steers dive into playoffs, Bowie on tap

“I’ve talked to a lot of coaches who have been in my position and I just try to heed their advice and make it fun for the guys,” BSHS boys’ basketball head coach Cliff Thompson said. “For a lot of them, I just make sure they’re enjoying it because it’s the last time they’ll get to do this. For me, it’s a learning process, for them it’s the only chance they get.”
