Carson Hillburn

Carson will be an impact player from the start for us, offensively he is ahead of the game as a young middle and he has shown to be a quick study and wont have any issue catching up to the speed in the ACAC. Carson has the ability to play in the middle and on the outside and we plan on using versatility.

Duncan is an extraordinary athlete and we plan on using that athleticism to develop Duncan into an outside attacker that can score for us efficiently. We have high expectations of Duncan coming to fill a bunch of roles for us from attacking or playing through the back row and we will be expecting big things from Duncan.

 Kale Kruger

Chace is our tallest and one of our first recruits from this class. As a middle he has the ability to make smart decisions quickly and block beyond his years.
