No basketballs for the WHS Boys Basketball team, just working hard towards a goal.

Guts Before Cuts is very known throughout the boys basketball program here at Wyoming High School. It is not your average one week of conditioning. The boys compress two weeks worth of conditioning, going hard for 45mins to an hour.

The main goal of Guts Before Cuts is to get the players ready for the season. Vander Klay uses this opportunity to see who’s in shape and who is not. “What players think is in shape is not in shape,” explained Coach Vander Klay.

The players are surprisingly relieved to be conditioning before tryouts start. “ I like doing guts before cuts because it gets us in shape,” said senior Melvin Frazier.

The exercises the players go through are designed for the Wolves’ style of basketball. “We like to play fast and run up the court,” Coach Vander Klay stated. In order to do that the players must be able to get up and down the court with ease. A few of the exercises they participate in are Clemsons, 17 stops, 4 stops, and shuffles along with many others.

“Clemson’s is the worst part,” said Melvin Frazier, “however, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”

After running seven Clemsons and doing many other exercises, the boys pushed through the pain and finished day 1 of Guts Before Cuts. The Wyoming boys are really getting prepared for their season.

“Watch out for Wyo boys this year!” said Frazier.
