The Hannemann kid will get drafted the highest. He will get paid! His football days are over.

Brugman will get drafted as well. Solid player, but the "WOW" factor wasn't there this year.

The Snyder boys depending on how much they're asking might be going pro. Cory should be very proud of those two. Solid players like their dad.

Draper didn't impress all that much this spring. He threw much better last summer and fall. His arm slot is different now and the velocity isn't there. Hurt arm? Great athlete, go to school.

Lund played solid ball. Went out like a champ! Lund's speed and arm strength alone get him drafted. BYU needs to expect that he's not coming to school.

Williams and Corless did great this year at SLCC. Williams needs to stick to the outfield, and hit. Corless will prove his high school coach wrong and show that leaving SF was the best thing for him.

Pretty exciting times for you boys. Make the best decisions for your futures and if going pro I hope you get the most amount of money possible.

The one thing your missing with Draprr is his work ethic. Draper was the only 5A pitcher to go undefeated with a 7-0 record this season beating both Bigham and American Fork during which he had a severe case of mono most of the season.. His fastball is still at 90mph and projected to be at 93-95 as he matures. He may be better off in college but would be a great pick for any MLB team.

If I am not mistaken Conner has already left on his mission. Great decision!
