Coach Mike Greinke said:

This is a tremendous day for our school and the entire Wilmot community. We are blessed to not only have talented individuals like Chris, Brian and Josh here at Wilmot, but also that these young men are of high character and will go on to do great things with their lives. Our program has come a long way in four short years and I credit that to all of our players and parents that bought in to the vision our coaching staff has established. I am very proud of them and the things that they have accomplished. I’m really looking forward to seeing what they can do at the next level.”
