I’m back again to try to say a bit more after conferences/regionals. I still suffer from a less than stellar memory of specific players, but here’s what I got-
Michigan Tech- McCann. Yeah. I’ll also say that #6 for them played well. Not sure about all region, but he was athletic and on the receiving end of stuff from McCann a lot.
GOP- Hard for me to say much about them due to the jersey situation, but they were just an all around great team. I’m sure they have a few deserving all region guys, but I don’t know who they are because they all end up looking the same in those shirts. The only guys that stick out in my mind are a guy with a mini Bob Ross haircut who had great throws but traveled just about every time he moved, as well as someone with dreds that made some big plays. Again I’m sure there’s more, but those jerseys plus my subpar memory of guys from other teams isn’t a great combo. Gotta give a shoutout to them for being one of the most spirited teams in the country too. Always fun to play against them.
St Johns- We didn’t end up playing them this year, but I know from past years and from seeing them play here and there throughout this year that Tyler Meyer is still an awesome player. I think their results this year hid his talents a bit, but it’s definitely worth mentioning that he’s still one of the better players in this region.
St Olaf- They had a couple guys with good deep throws. Don’t remember numbers, but I’m guessing some of them have been mentioned here already. I heard they don’t have any seniors this year? It’ll definitely be worth watching them over the next few years, they were a better team than their 8th place finish would suggest.
Lastly, coming back to my Luther squad quickly. We have a handful of guys that should be in all-region discussion, but #27 Owen Schleif and #44 Jon Lovagnini cemented their honors this weekend. #20 Chad Messerich is one of the guys that should be in the discussion, but I have to highlight again that he’s only a freshman- Get him on your ballots for FOTY.
