Currently the roster consists mostly of players from the Central and Southern parts of the state of Illinois. Two 2018 graduates worth noting are INF Andrew DeLaCruz (Litchfield) and LHP Blake Stuble (Carrollton).  DeLaCruz is an undersized switch-hitting infielder who controls the barrel from both sides of the plate. Meanwhile, Struble sports a 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame, three pitches for a strike and a fastball that was up to 81 mph at an event last winter.
