TOP RETURNERS

X-FACTOR
Cameron Jurek. Jurek, a 6-foot, 175-pound pitcher/shortstop will be a four year starter for the Falcons. All Conference last year.

NEWCOMER TO WATCH
2017, Noah Winkelman, C. The left-hand hitting catcher will contribute as a sophomore. Winkelman shows a good eye at the plate; with pop in his bat.

2015 OUTLOOK
The Falcons look to re-build after losing 7 position players from last years squad; along with 3 pitchers who all threw over 15 innings in the Spring. Big loss was catcher Tyler Midas who is currently a freshman at reigning 2014 NJCAA National Champion Iowa Western CC. Foley will be inexperienced early on; but Jurek will one of the top pitchers in the area and keep them competitive. Also 2017 Noah Winkelman is a young player to watch with positive reports continuing to come in on him.
