Inside the Warriors

"We're a young team, and we're disciplined. We're going to have to work hard to compete day in and day out." ~! coach Reginald Paige

Go-to player: David Pitts, Sr., F/C. He has good touch on his mid-range jump shots and will provide decent size at 6-foot-3.

Circled on the Calendar: Feb. 1 at Roosevelt. Unlike last season, Campagna will play mostly road games against IHSAA-affiliated programs. Though every away game against those schools will prove to be a huge test for the Warriors, it's likely they won't face a team as established as Roosevelt. Campagna also faces region teams in Whiting, Covenant Christian, South Central and Gary 21st Century. Every game in which Campagna faces an IHSAA-affiliated opponent can be used as a measure of how much the program has grown.

The Times' Breakdown

Campagna Academy's six wins last season were against teams unaffiliated with the IHSAA, so it's difficult to gauge how the Warriors will fare this season. A more difficult schedule is certainly on the road ahead, as the upstart Warriors will play 10 non-tournament games against IHSAA opponents. Campagna also is slated to compete in the Elkhart Central Shootout and Calumet Tournament at the end of December. While overall interest in the program remains fairly low, new coach Reginald Paige is trying to build up more excitement in a team that began just one year ago while also teaching life lessons in the process. "I want to make sure that our players are mentally, physically and academically ready to play," Paige said. "I try to teach the game here, and use that as a stepping stone for things they'll experience in life outside of high school, and give these kids an opportunity to possibly play basketball at the next level." !~ Matt Douthett
