2020 OUTLOOK:
Going into our 2020 season we are extremely excited about the group we have coming back and our junior class. The young men from last years team are a great group of leaders that we will rely on heavily with the loss of some key players from 2019. They have proven to be difference makers. The junior class brings depth to our program that will allow us to keep guys fresh. They have had a ton of success and we look forward to seeing them contribute and compete for us this year.” Head Coach Derek Stecklein
