What Tourbeau Sports Group Had To Say….
Ethan Bauer was a tremendous asset to the Wildcat squad during the tournament. While being switched from one side of the field to the other, and even sometimes in the central position, he had the work-rate any club is looking for. Bauer not only enjoyed getting free in the attack, but he also was not afraid mixing in on the defensive side. His passion was evident and with another season to play-he could give teams a lot of trouble in 2012.
Nate is a technical, smart defender who also has the uncanny ability to get stuck-in on forwards on a consistent basis. Not only does he know the game, but he is physical-which is a dangerous combination. A "hidden hero" for the Baker squad this year, this Wildcat defender led by example. As a result, Byarlay was tabbed with NAIA All-American first-team honors.
