Coach Johhny Brechtel gave all of the Seniors a heartfelt send off, noting in particular his appreciation for their acceptance and the leadership demonstrated during the course of the coaching change this year, and although the season did not result in a playoff berth the team demonstrated toughness by never giving up and the lessons learned should carry over to the future both on and off the field. “Good luck in the 2015 season”
