He is loud and fun to watch and always striving to do better. He is a great motivator and always tries to cheer people on to do better or to improve, as he knows it will improve the team.

Griffin Kopp

Griffin has stepped up big time this season. He was moved to a position that sacrificed lots of points for the opportunity to help the team where it was needed. Griffin lead the state for the majority of the season in ground balls. He is the #1 face-off guy for Huntley which allows them the ability to control the ball. He has been a workhorse for Huntley that rarely comes off the field. He gets banged up often because of his role and doesn't miss much. At the end of each game he's got every part of his body bandaged and iced with a big smile on his face. This is the epitome of being an athlete. Not to mention he is the most conditioned player on the team. Lots of people say they work in the off-season to improve. Griffin proves it with his actions. Griffin gets overlooked because he doesn't put of the goals like other members of the team. But those guys don't score a single goal if Griffin isn't doing his thing. Griffin is being given Huntley's only spot in the Illinois All Star game.
