Brian said, “I am a proud member of the Premontre family and athlete for the best coaches and men I have known in this sport, Harold Geiser and Richard Hietpas. The Premontre support system was nothing short of a family commitment. I truly remember the people of Premontre and the staff much more than any sports accomplishment. It was a pleasure to work hard on behalf of the school and, hopefully, help the school gain well-deserved notice as a leader in academic and athletic excellence.”
