Joining Mill is a junior INF Connor Boyt.  He will was a Honorable Mention a season ago. Expect sophomore OF Tyler Henry to crack the line up at some point this season and have an impact on the 'Blazer's success.  Gardner-Edgerton has a host of juniors and seniors ready to compete in the EKL this season.  Senior OF/RHP Nolan Beets, Neosho County recruit, and OF/LHP Andrew Halveson lead the list.  The Trailblazers are ready to improve on their 2015 season and have the experience and talent to do so.
