Aquinas attackman Tanner Olbrich.

The Michigan State bound Olbrich was named to the GRALL Super sixteen list in his junior year. In his letter of recommendation, Assistant Coach Mike Kelly wrote:

"I have been honored to coach Tanner for the past three years. I have seen his work ethic in the weight room, after school shooting, off season work outs and his commitment to team first-hand. He has developed into a complete player. This award should go to the player that shows all these attributes but as important the player his teammates and coaches trust and admire. When the game is on the line the players and myself wanted the ball in Tanner's stick. He showed grit and determination in every game he played."
