“I was very satisfied with play and performance of the team, they were a close knit group of boys on and off the field which helped in the chemistry of the team,” coach Mark Neitz said assessing the season.

“They didn’t quit like many teams I’ve seen and been associated with, when they were down in a game they kept scratching and clawing till the end.”

“It is great to bring the 2015 Cougars team together one last night to celebrate the season with these wonderful young men,” said Neitz. “I have coached most of these players for four years now and great friendships have been made, so it is just nice to spend the evening laughing and joking with them.”

Three players were selected from the team to represent the league at the All-Star banquet Carson Neitz, Steele Nichols, and Noah Mckay.
