"We have a great deal of young talent in our 2021 class. The SR class compliments that group of younger players very nicely. Our league is incredibly tough with Johnston, Urbandale, Dowling, Centennial and Ames. There is enough talent on this team to play down at Principal Park this year and for several year’s to come." Head Coach Joe Balvanz
