O’Bryan is a serious receiving threat, having caught 48 passes for 480 yards and three touchdowns as a junior. He’ll also be an important contributor on defense for the Pioneers.

Casey Bauman

Junior QB/SS

After a solid sophomore season, Bauman, who is being looked at by colleges, will be a vital piece to the Pioneers’ offense. Last year, he threw for 1,600 yards and 16 touchdowns while also making plays with his feet.

Luke Winter

Junior G/DE

Winter will play an important role for the defense opposite Evan Blankers at defensive end. He and Blankers will have to supply enough pressure on opposing offensive lines for the Pioneers to be steady on defense.
