Last season, Anthony was pressed into a starting guard role. This experience will benefit him greatly moving forward. Kruse will join Brandon Bezold and Logan Woosley to form our guard corps. “A.K.” is a reliable ball handler, who also put 92 points on the scoreboard, while shooting 72% from the free-throw line. A full summer of weight/strength training and a steady diet of skills improvement work, will position Kruse to be a major impact player in his senior season.
Logan has been a major contributor at the varsity level for the past two seasons. Often described as a pitbull, “Wooz” is an aggressive player who is a tenacious defender. Last season, Logan shot 60% from the field, 45% from beyond the arc, and 74% from the charity stripe, while scoring 150 points. Woosley tried his had at football this fall where he was a wide receiver and primary kick returner. He, Bezold and Kruse will be a formidable backcourt trio.

Brandon Bezold is a man for all seasons. Golf in the fall, hoops in the winter, and baseball in the spring. When not actively participating, he can be found in the front row of the Student Section, leading cheers. “Beez” was a mainstay a year ago, putting up 203 points, and doling out 60 assists. He shot a blistering 87% from the free-throw line. Brandon will be counted on to be a team leader in all facets this season.
Fresh off of the gridiron, Sam Willike is expected to make major contributions. He was our most improved player between Freshman and Sophomore seasons, but was limited his Junior year due to nagging football injuries. Despite missing 11 games a year ago, Sam was able to contribute 150 points @ 60% from the field, 45% from beyond the arc and 74% from the charity stripe. A healthy Willike will be a major asset to this team.

Also know as “Smilin’ Jack” and “J-Poe”, while often referring to him as our “Swiss Army Knife.” Steady, Reliable, and Consistent could be some descriptions. Primarily our “sixth man” forward, Jack was even pressed into Guard service when needed a year ago. He contributed in 30 of our 31 games during that season and will have a larger role this year, as one of our seven seniors. Jack may be the player who most benefited by our ASAP Strength Training sessions over the summer, and ongoing. Jack is a First Honors student in the classroom.
Mason Sepate is a three year varsity starter who comes in to the 2022-23 campaign with 527 career varsity points scored. On paper, he and Luke Schumacher should vie for leading scorer honors this season, in a “it doesn’t matter who scores, so long as we score environment.” Known for exciting the crowd by stringing together 3 point goals, Mason has knocked down 73 of them in his career. Mason is another who has benefitted dramatically by our summer-long Strength and Fitness program at ASAP.

Luke Schumacher, simply gets the job done. He has already shown the ability to be a top scorer. Luke was granted a healthy junior year where he was our third leading scorer, second leading rebounder, and led the team in assists (67). He and Mason Sepate led the team in charges taken. He has shown in the pre-season that he can play the run game, and is finishing extremely well around the hoop. Luke is a perennial fist-honors student.
