Throughout the 2016-2017 season, our players have excelled in activities both on and of the basketball court. We are proud of the purpose-driven attitude that our players display as young men of character.

Throughout the season, members of the team visited the "Panther Club" at Highland Elementary School.
The purpose of the “Panther Club” is for DCHS Boys Basketball players to build mentoring relationships with young students. The hope is that these relationships will encourage the students to follow the purpose driven approach that is a cornerstone of the DCHS Boys Basketball Program.
