Evan Drilling

Making this big of a leap, Evan Drilling has no problem avoiding the ball hit by a teammate. Drilling would go to third on the play, then score one of 10 runs Turkey Valley would use in the game one win over MFL Monday.
Remember the old commercials “this is what your brain looks like on drugs?” Turkey Valley Dan Stepan used a similar approach when he sent box scores on the Trojan baseball team’s early-week games.

Cody Hackman earned UIC first team honors for the second straight year and was a three-time UIC pick at the end of the season.

It looks like a bit of an impossible dream, but Evan Drilling did score this basket against Clayton Ridge’s Robby Sweers Tuesday in the season-ending loss.
