Conference Preview

Posted On: 10/27/15 8:00 PM

Head Coach: Charlie Wilde

Affiliation: AIA, Division 1, Section 2

Top Dog(s): AJ Elliot (6’7”, F, SR); Nik Mains (6’9”, F, SR);

Sleeper: Jordan Mains (6’1”, G, FR);

Notes: The Pioneers are a lot less experienced than they have been in the past but they are plenty talented. They have veterans in the frontcourt with 6’7” AJ Elliot and Nik Mains, a pair of seniors that complement each other well. Elliot is an interior enforcer with a great motor. Mains is a skilled shooting forward who really turned a corner this summer and fall in terms of his aggressiveness and production level. 6’7” senior Tyson Wahlberg, 6’6” junior Connor Hatchings, and 6’6” sophomore Patrick Kelly add depth. The backcourt, while talented is very unproven. 5’11” junior Nate Gorsech will get the first shot at the point guard position. He will share the responsibilities with 5’10” freshman Trent Brown. 2019 classmate Jordan Mains could develop into a key player as well.
