A shortstop and top-of-the-rotation guy for the Lumberjacks, O’Connor possess all of the positive qualities a coach at any level would want in a student-athlete.

Turvey, who is heading for his second season with the ‘Jacks, said that UB is getting a winner in more way than one. The coach said O’Connor is the epitome of hard work and character.

"Mike is just that," Turvey said. "He handles himself well on the field as well as off. I don’t have to worry about him getting into any trouble or anything like that. He has a great attitude. When he walks into practice, he’s a player. He’s a baseball player."

Wrestling Commit Logan Rill, Mount St. Joseph's team featured in Baltimore's Catholic Review

Logan Rill, the 195-pounder, is the middle man in his own family’s tradition at Mount St. Joseph. His brother, Keagan, a sophomore, is the Gaels’ 220-pounder. An older brother, Tyler, graduated from Mount St. Joseph in 2012. He’s wrestling for the University of Buffalo, where Logan has been accepted.

Their father starred in the sport for North Carroll High in the 1980s. They live in Hampstead. Why drive past schools like McDonogh to go to Mount St. Joseph?

"I began hearing about the tradition here when my brother (Tyler) was a freshman," he said. "We talk about that a lot here, and we want to be the team that makes it great again. We’re very close. This is like family."
