  Matthew is another senior who has come up through the
ranks.  He factored in 12 varsity games a year ago, while
playing primarily with the JV team.
Matt is another whe grew up in our gym, attending our
Summer Youth Camps and rooting for the Mustangs since
his grade school days.
Matt has made strides on an annual basis, and finds
himself in a position to help us bridge the gap created by a
multitude of pre-season injuries.

 Stephen Verst has been a regular in our gymnasium since
attending our Summer Youth Basketball Camps as a second
grader.  He won a record number of awards throughout the
years, and is presently a senior.
Stephen and Carson Schirmer will comprise one of the most
formidable backcourts in all of Northern Kentucky.  Verst
was our third leading scorer a year ago when he averaged
12.3 ppg.  He hit 65 three-pointers (42%), and hit a blistering
79% from the charity stripe.  He knoced down a school best
6-8 from 3-point land last year versus Frankfort in the "A"
State Tournament.   Verst, who is a perennial first-honors
student, spent this past summer at Governor's Scholars.
He comes into this season with 536 career points.  
Mick Clines is a three sport athlete.  In additions to hoops he
is a mainstay on the soccer pitch where he was our second
leading scorer, and is a member of our Track team.
Mick factored in 21 varsity basketball game last season and
started in all 21 JV contests.
Quiet and unassuming, he brings intelligence, consistency
and great decision-making to the table.
With the graduation of four key seniors off of last year's
team, Mick is expected to have an expanded role this year.
Mick is also a perennial first-honors student.
  Carson Schirmer is one of he most exciting players to
ever wear a Brossart uniform.  He was our second leading
scorer last season, putting up 474 points (14.8 ppg),
bringing his career total to 896 points, setting himself up
to become the 19th player in Brossart history to join our
1,000 Points Club.  He will begin this season recovering
from an injury sustained while trying his hand at football,
where he played six games and scored five touchdowns.
Carson too is a first honors student.  Last year he was
named 10th Region All-Region - Honorable Mention.  He
also runs track.    
  Gabe honed his shooting skills with the JV team a year
ago, where he was the team's leading scorer, netting 130
points, including 33 three-pointers, an "unkept" school
Gabe will dent the varsity starting lineup this season, where
he will again be called upon to be a primary outside shooting
threat.  He and Stephen Verst will provide bookend
long-range shooting threats.
Smorey experienced his "one shining moment" in last year's
Regional Tournament, when he came from off the bench
and nailed a 3-pointer in the waning seconds of our 25-7
