”I'm excited about the 2024 Season as we will be an older team for once returning multiple starters. All are either three, four, or five year starters for me. I have a great group of seniors that bought in their 8th grade season and three of them are 5 year starters for me. They have also been great leaders for the younger guys. We as a team have big hopes and have set our goals high for the 2024 Season. But as always it will be one game at a time approach all season!” - JASON BENDGEN, Head Coach
