Mike Van Ermen is one of the bigger stars in the league, and the leader of the Spartans. He’s a solid catcher, but a great transition killer and has a tremendous power arm . His play at Nationals 2013 helped garner him All-NCDA honors as a Junior.

Ian has been one of the most important Spartans in the history of the program, and he helped MSU get to the National Title Game last season. He has one of the strongest arms on the team, and is possibly the most dangerous crosser in the league. He’s also a vocal leader, and can cover his teammates extremely well.

-From Drummond Island, MI

Tim came into his own last season, as he was a crucial part of many of MSU’s victories. He was always a great blocker, but he added in a good counter into his repertoire, making him an offensive threat to go along with his defensive prowess.

Nicole is another player who stepped their game up last season, and also took a little bit of a leadership role. She’s deadly with her sneak attack throw, is incredibly hard to hit, and is fearless.

Injuries shortened Eric’s season last year, but he’s still one of the best players in MSU history. He’s got an extremely accurate and fast throw, is one of the better catchers in the league, and has some speed to his game. He can be a game changer for the Spartans in 2013-2014.

-From Bridgman, MI

-Horticulture

 

Kyle has one goal in mind when throwing a dodgeball- headshots. He has a strong arm, and works great as a teammate. He’s also one of the loosest Spartans out there, and can definitely help State out when it comes to getting some wins.

 

CHARLIE WILSHIRE #3

-From Bloomfield Hills, MI

-Supply Chain Management

 

Charlie was one of the heroes of the Nationals 2013 run that the Spartans went on, as he threw ball after ball to eliminate opponents or beat the shot clock. He doesn’t have the strongest arm, but he’s still a lethal player on the court offensively.

 

ALEX KROHN #15

-From Riverview, MI

Alex got his first taste of big time dodgeball at the 2013 Michigan Dodgeball Cup, where he played well. He has a good cross, can dodge, and can make timely catches.

 

JOHN LUZENSKI #12

-From Milford, MI

John is possibly the most clutch player on the Spartans. Time after time he makes a huge catch, a big kill, or a big block. He’s one of the better all-around players on MSU, and he’s a guy that can keep MSU in points.
