MIKE HOWARD sophomore
“I’m 6’2 and a half and I’m looking to play big man and get some rebounds and score some baskets. Over the summer I met with a trainer and he helped me gain some mass and work on my shot. I’d say they went pretty well, I made the JV team and I got a lot bigger over the summer. It’s fun.”
MIKE MASSEY junior
"I like it in the chorus room because I think it’s a cozy room. It’s usually a little bit warm. You’ve got places to sing, you know? There’s always something going on in there, whether it be someone playing the piano or the bongos. It’s just exciting, really. Anything going on. I think no other teacher would allow some of the things that go on in here. Other than Mr. [Ray] Sherrock. It’s...

"I chose to go to De Smet because both the academic program and the athletics programs are incredibly strong. I am very proud to be involved in the baseball team here at De Smet.

The true brotherhood of De Smet on or off the field is apparent and is the main reason why I chose to come to...
