Some important factors in our success this season have been:
When we have been able to avoid turning the ball over on offense we have been tough to stop. Our defense has done a good job of limiting teams big plays and forcing turnovers. The depth of the team has been an important factor. We have rotated a lot of different starting lineups and been able to keep the level of play consistent. Our seniors have been great servant leaders.
 
Significant records, statistics, achievements of this team:
Max Weidner ate 9 A&W Hamburgers in one sitting which helps explain exactly why they call him "Beef Tank" This has not been the highest scoring team or most dominant team in school history, but it might be one of the teams that has played together as a unit and loved each other and competition every single day.
 
Noteworthy data on individual players:
Grant Ludwig, Sam Hopfer, Carter Wessel, and Shaye Olmscheid were on the Class C amatuer baseball tournament runner up Lake Henry Lakers.
 
Other Interests and Achievements of team personnel:
Jared Campbell - National Merit Scholar winner can play ANYTHING on the piano. Luke Johnson - could be a stunt double if they ever make a Mighty Ducks IV. A vast majority of our players are 2 and 3 sport athletes. They love competing with each other and if they are not playing sports they seem to be hunting, fishing, or eating meals together.
