Due to the closure of schools, the Class of 2020 did not get a chance to play out their senior seasons and missed the chance at a true Senior Night. We have had the great pleasure of scouting these players their entire careers and wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate them one last time.

A special thanks goes out to the High School Coaches for their assistance in collecting this information. The dedication to their teams and love of their players that they have is evident in the information they have given us.
