Dean Loukus

Calumet | Forward

Senior

"It seems every year Calumet has a Loukus or two on the roster! They have all been quality players, but Dean might just be the best of them all, and that is saying a lot. A tenacious player who has a constant motor, and makes plays at top speed. He is a high-end guy for sure, and I expect him to continue playing for many years after his career at Calumet is done." -Opposing MHSAA Coach

Jimmy Pietila

Houghton | Goalie

Senior

"Jimmy has made quite the name for himself. If playing the stingy Gremlin team wasnt hard enough, you have to deal with him on the back end. He plays up top, challenges shooters, and has great athleticism as well. There are a lot of great goalies in Michigan, but it says a lot when many coaches agree that he might be the very best." -Opposing MHSAA Coach
