For all talk about Gersich (and rightfully so for a guy who was playing as an 8th grader and just scored 60 points as a freshman), he wasn't even the highest scoring freshman on his own team. That honor went to John Peterson
. Top Freshman scorers in state
1) How much attention is being payed to Peterson from a recruiting perspective?
2) Given Holy Family Catholic just had two freshman score 60+ points and another score 31 this past season, does anyone think that HFC has any chance of making noise in the next couple years? Their third leading scorer
will be a junior, fourth
leading scorers seniors, seventh
juniors next season. In fact, all top eight leading scorers on the team could be slated to return this next season. The team will graduate 6 players from this season's team: defensmen Tim Fellner, Mike Gaslin, and Austin Balm; forwards Tanner Steen and Will Hanscomb; and back-up goaltender Larry Bieneman. I never have any reason to follow HFC, so I don't know if this is normal and I'm late to the party, or if they might have a good group of young players to build around (provided they stay).
