Football
Marty Auer, University of Notre Dame

His dedication to film study made him a coach on the field and with his athleticsm it combined into big plays in almost every game. Marty was voted the Scholar-Athlete by his teammates because of his unbelievable academic achievements and athletic skills. Marty will walk on at Notre Dame but we all believe he will play at the highest level of collegiate football because of his mental fortitude, athleticism, and natural instinctive abilities.
 
Artist Benjamin, Illinois Wesleyan University
Coach Holecek says, “Artist has the rare combination of length and athleticism for a cornerback so he was assigned opposite our opponent's best receiver. He excelled at this task and he matured into an instinctive shut down corner. As his confidence grew, he played his best in the clutch moments of games earning him All-CCL recognition. Artist will be an immediate impact player at Illinois Wesleyan whose best days are ahead of him.”

Boys’ Soccer
Oscar Blazer, Duquesne University
Coach Baer Fisher says, “Oscar has been an incredible part of our boys’ soccer program over the past four years. As a four-year varsity letter winner, Oscar's passion for the game has never wavered. Numerous challenges have tested his resolve over the past few years, but he has overcome each challenge, including a serious leg break last September, to earn the opportunity to play Division 1 collegiate soccer. Voted "Varsity Comeback Player of the Year" this season, we could not be more proud of Oscar and we wish him the best at Duquesne!”
 
Dylan Gripman, Illinois Wesleyan University
Coach Baer Fisher says,Dylan has been a member of our program for three years since he transferred to Loyola for his sophomore year, and he has grown both on and off the field each year. He was named "Varsity's Most Improved Player" following his impressive play throughout the spring season. We look forward to watching Dylan as he transitions into his well-deserved collegiate opportunity at Illinois Wesleyan.”

Crew
Kristen Dutkin, Clemson University
