INMAN -- Inman High School junior’s Payton Froese and Mason Thiessen have proven they are capable scorers, but if the Teutons are to have success in 2018, they will need more players to step up.

Froese, the team’s leading returning scorer, and Froese, a 6-foot-7 forward who nearly averaged a double double last year, will be heavily relied on to lead the team in scoring. Inman head coach Brett Froese also has four returning lettermen he knows he can count on, but there will be some unknowns heading into the team’s first game.

“We are really going to have to find some depth early,” Froese said. “We lost a couple of key injuries and we had a kid move away over the summer.”
Nathan Enns, Jack Doerksen, Jordan Friesen, and Ethan Stubbs will all be fighting for a spot in the starting five. Outside of his top six, Froese is facing uncertainty.

“The kids will really look hard, and I’m not worried about that, but we are going to have to have some kids step up that have never played a varsity game before,” Froese said.

The Teutons open up their season on Dec. 1 at home against Goessel.
