2018 Spring Team Preview: Wapakoneta Redskins

Team Name: Wapakoneta Redskins
Head Coach: Jason Brandt
Division: II
2017 Record: 20-4
Conference Record: Western Buckeye League, 8-1, 1st
Returning Starters/Pitchers: 7/5

Team Strengths: 

  • Starting Pitching
  • Athleticism

Coach Outlook: “With a veteran team returning from last year’s District Runner Up team and Poll Champions I feel like we have a very good chance to be good again this year. We need to make sure we take each game one at a time and play good team baseball. We need to make sure we throw strikes consistently, play solid defense and get timely hitting.”

PBR Outlook: Coach Brandt always has his Redskins ready and 2018 will be no different. With basically three aces on the hill, look for Wapak to be a team to watch all year.
