Austin High basketball coach Major Deacon looked forward to his first full summer with the Black Bears.
Deacon, entering his second year as head coach, took the Austin job in August of last year. He missed out on the opportunity to see his players in live-game situations during the summer of 2019.
It’s more of the same this year. Deacon said the team is holding voluntary workouts focusing on individual drills and conditioning to protect the safety of his players and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic. The team held a workout Wednesday.
