If Saturday’s results are any indication of the 2014 season, James has to be feeling pretty good about his team’s chances for success this fall.
Fayette won back-to-back games in the loser’s bracket of the tournament, coming from behind to beat Warsaw 5-4 to win the consolation trophy.

Experience, depth are huge positives for Falcons heading into 2014 season
During his first two seasons as head coach, Tom Oakley spent many a game putting young players into varsity games when they weren’t quite ready for that level.
He couldn’t help it. He had to do it. After all, because of low numbers and numerous injuries, Oakley was left with no choice.
The thing is, now all of that is going to pay off in 2014. Fayette returns eight starters on offense and seven more on defense, bringing back players with multiple years of varsity experience. Many have started anywhere between 15 and 30 games in their high school careers.
