Nick Kuehn (Class--2018)     6' 0"     Guard     Greendale

Nick, who joins FLASH for the 1st time in 2016, is a basketball-only athlete from Greendale. A very athletic guard, Nick has the ability to play both the point and "2" guard roles and will play both for FLASH. Nick is a player who has multiple skills offensively as he can shoot well from the perimeter as well as put the ball on the floor and go to the basket. He sees the floor well and is a willing passer and due to his athletic ability, he can be a very solid defender. Nick, a very aggressive player, started all season for the Greendale JV team this past season and will be a very welcome addition to the FLASH roster. Nick had a very good 1st season with FLASH in 2016 as both a starter and reserve. His 56 assists were 3rd on the team and his 20 made "3's" made him one of six players on the team to hit 20 or more "3's" which resulted in a team record for "3's" in a season. Nick also shot 78% from the FT line which moved him into the top 10 on the all-time FLASH single season record list. His hard work and aggressive style helped him to continually improve his game all season.




Will Kegel (Class--2018)     5' 11"   Guard     Whitnall

Will, who is a "basketball only" athlete at Whitnall, is a natural point guard who has the ability to make everyone around him better. Although he has the ability to score from both the perimeter and by taking the ball to the basket, he has excellent court vision and his ability to see the floor will often result in easy baskets for teammates. Defensively, he is a very active player who can create problems for an opposing ballhandler. Above all, he is a "take charge" leader on the floor.Will displayed that leadership all season for the FLASH freshmen as he led the team in assists with 88 and became only the 5th player in FLASH history to record a point/ assist "double-double" with an 11 point/10 assist game at a tournament in Racine in June as he helped lead FLASH to the tournament Championship..He was also 4th on the team in points scored. As a sophomore, Will was the starting point guard for the JV Falcons and had an outstanding season as the team's floor leader. Will had an outstanding season for FLASH in 2016 as the team's starting point guard. He was one of four players to score more than 200 points (213) and was also one of six players with 20 or more "3's" (32) to help break the team record for "3's" in a season. His step-back "3" with 4 seconds to play at a game at the National Tournament in Bolingbrook, Illinois tied the game and helped set up a dramatic finish as teammate Max Magyar stole the ensuing inbound pass and hit teammate Vlado Zrnic for the winning lay-in. Will greatly improved his perimeter shooting in his 2nd season with FLASH but remained the type of point guard who makes everyone else better with his vision and his passing. He became only the 8th player in FLASH history to record more than 100 assists in a season and his 117 assists moved him into 4th on the single season list for FLASH. His 205 assists in the past 2 seasons also moved him into 4th on the career list. 


Jonah Bzdawka  (Class--2018)     6' 3"   Forward     Whitnall

Jonah, who plays both basketball and baseball for Whitnall, had an outstanding season as a starting post for the Falcon's freshman team. Offensively, Jonah has the skill set to be able to score both in the post and on the perimeter and therefore creates match-up problems for opponents and defensively, he is a very solid defender and rebounder. He opened his freshman season at Whitnall by posting point/rebound "double-doubles" in 2 of his first 3 high school games. Jonah had a solid season for the FLASH freshmen despite missing time in the middle of the season due to a hand surgery. He was 5th on the team in points scored and was one of the team's best rebounders. As a sophomore, Jonah was moved up to the varsity level at Whitnall as a reserve post. Jonah had a solid season for FLASH in 2016 as he continued to be one of the team's top rebounders and more aggressive defenders. His offensive game picked up in the 2nd half of the season as well as he played a big role as a post player for FLASH.



Max Magyar  (Class--2018)     5' 10"   Guard     Oak Creek

Max, who plays both basketball and baseball at Oak Creek, was a starting guard for the freshman Knights this past season. Offensively, Max is a very solid perimeter shooter who also has the ability to handle the ball and sees the floor well. Defensively, he is an active player who has the ability to create turnovers for his opponents. Whether as a valued 6th man or as a starter, Max had an outstanding season for FLASH as a freshman. He led the team in made "3's" with 36 (which ranked him on the all-time FLASH single season list) while coming in 3rd on the team in points scored. Max hit 5 "3's" in a single game during the season which tied him for 2nd on the single game record list but he became the 1st FLASH player to attain this accomplishment more than once in a season as he did it three times.  Although he played well all season, Max played his best basketball in the 2nd half of the season and after hitting back-to-back "3's" in the 1st half of the 1st game of the Noah's Ark Classic in the Dells (last tournament of the season), he rolled his ankle and missed the rest of the tournament therefore ending his season early. It was a major disappointment for a player who had played so well and played such a major role on the team. As a sophomore at Oak Creek, Max spent the season as the starting "2" guard for the JV Knights and had an outstanding season as the team's top "3 point" shooter and 2nd leading scorer. He had multiple 20+ point games highlighted by his season high 26 points in the final game of the season against Kenosha Indian Trails. Max had an outstanding season in 2016 for FLASH as he was one of four players to score at least 200 points (296) and was the 2nd leading scorer on the team. He also led the team in made "3's" with 49 to help set the team record for made "3's" in a season but also moved himself into a 3rd place tie on the FLASH single season list while his 85 "3's" in the past 2 seasons moved him into a 3rd place tie on the career list as well. An excellent offensive player, Max made one of his biggest plays of the season on defense in a game at the National Tournament in Bolingbrook, Illinois in July. After a made "3" by teammate Will Kegel tied the game with 4 seconds remaining, Max anticipated and stole the ensuing inbound pass and hit teammate Vlado Zrnic for a lay-in at the buzzer to win the game in dramatic fashion.



Sean Damro (Class--2018)     6' 2"   Guard/Forward     Whitnall

Sean is a "basketball only" athlete from Whitnall who was a starter for the Falcon's freshmen team this past season.  A solid all-around player, he is a player who has a knack for doing all of the "little things" that coaches tend to notice. He can handle and pass the ball well, score from the perimeter or from driving to the basket, rebound against bigger players and seems to always be in the right spot to come up with a loose ball. Defensively, he will "hound" his opponent and is a very productive defender. As a freshman for FLASH, Sean settled into the role of a key reserve off the bench as he could be counted on to do whatever was needed of him to help the team succeed. He has a knack for being in the right position to make plays on both ends of the floor. Sean continued his solid play as a sophomore at Whitnall where he started all season for the JV Falcons. Sean had a very good season for FLASH in 2016 as a solid all-around player who could be counted on to make big plays when the team needed it. Sean was one of six players to hit at least 20 "3's" (21) to help set the team record for "3's" in a season. He also was a solid perimeter defender who was at his best deflecting passes and forcing turnovers. 


Andrew Sodemann (Class--2018)     6' 5"   Post     Greendale

Andrew plays both basketball and baseball for Greendale and was the starting post of the Panthers freshmen team this past season.  An active player, he has the ability to be very productive due to his length and skill set. As a young post player, he has a tremendous shooting touch and can knock down shots from the perimeter as well as in the post. Defensively, he uses his length to his advantage as a shot blocker and rebounder. As a freshman for FLASH, Andrew was forced to develop more of his post game on both ends of the floor. He became a productive rebounder for FLASH while still having the ability to step out on the perimeter. As a sophomore at Greendale, Andrew started all season for the JV Panthers and had a very solid season as both a scorer and rebounder but also as a shot blocker defensively. In his final game of the season against New Berlin West, he brought all three together as he recorded his 1st ever "triple-double" with 11 points, 11 rebounds and an astounding 10 blocked shots. Andrew had a very good season for FLASH in 2016 as the team's starting post player. He was the team's 5th leading scorer but had his biggest impact as a rebounder and shot blocker defensively. He showed continual improvement all season and helped the team's defensive success by being the shot blocker that allowed teammates to be more aggressive on the perimeter.



Oliver Krause  (Class--2018)     6' 3"   Forward     Living Word

Oliver, the 1st ever "home-schooled" player in FLASH history, plays basketball for WCHSA where he split his time between the JV and varsity level as a freshman.  An active player, Oliver can take the ball aggressively to the basket and also does a good job of rebounding on both ends of the floor.  Defensively, he will be expected to help provide a post presence for FLASH.  As a freshmen, with FLASH, Oliver was forced to play more in the post than he has been accustomed to which was a change for him as he typically played more on the perimeter with his high school team.  He made the adjustment well and was a big contributor for FLASH highlighted by an 18 point performance off the bench in a win at the Noah's Ark Classic in July.  As a sophomore, Oliver played at the varsity level for WCHSA. Oliver had a very solid season for FLASH in 2016 as he became much more aggressive in his 2nd season with FLASH. His scoring and rebounding improved as a result and his confidence and overall game showed continual improvement.





 Brett Greish  (Class--2018)    6' 6"    Post     Oak Creek


Brett, who is new to FLASH in 2017, plays both basketball and golf at Oak Creek High School. As a junior, he was a reserve post on the Oak Creek varsity and will bring solid post depth to the FLASH roster with his ability to rebound on both ends of the floor. Offensively, he has the ability to finish around the basket and defensively, he is a post presence in the lane area where he can both block shots and alter shots in help defense. Brett will be a nice addition to FLASH.
