“We’re so thankful that we were blessed to have Sam, Wasko, Layke, Hoppe, Holty and Forsy represent the Black and Gold! I couldn’t ask for more from a group of guys that showed leadership, work ethic, dedication to academics, and promoting a great team culture. I can’t wait to see the successes they will have as they leave St Peter for the next chapter of their lives. I know they will continue to be great Gusties and supportive of the next group that comes through!”
