By Steve Nielsen
Scouting Director - Wisconsin/Illinois

As we lead up to the start of Wisconsin's spring high school season we will be rolling out team previews from schools across the state. 

Team: Madison Edgewood
2013 Record: 11-9
Conference: Badger South
WIAA Class: 2
Head Coach: Richard Newton
Playoff Run: Lost Regional Championship

Returning Starters: 7
Returning Pitchers: 6

Colten DeMorett, 3B, 2014 (Minnesota Duluth)
Aaron Mack, C, 2014 (Newman)
Alex Wendler, SS, 2014
Cody Link, 1B/RHP, 2016
Jake Dragoo, CF, 2014
Parker Alsteens, OF, 2015
Jack Drake, RHP, 2016
JJ Johnson, RHP, 2015
KC Daniels. DH, 2014

Paul Mutch (Winona State)

Cody Link could make big strides for the Crusaders this season. He has filled out his 6-foot-3 frame to 190-pounds and looked strong with the bat recently at the Madison Preseason ID posting a 93 mph exit velocity from the tee.

The Crusaders return seven starters on offense and six pitchers and should be able to rely on the experience in 2014. One thing they will be lacking this year is a top end arm that can shut teams down. They will rely on Colten DeMorett, JJ Johnson and Jack Drake on the mound, with DeMorett and Mack leading the way with the bats.

NOTE: Any high school coaches that have not turned in their PBR Preseason Questionnaire please do so to Steve Nielsen at [email protected].
