Evan Wurzbacher (Sr, Hersey) was selected to the Illinois High School Hockey All State Team. Evan is the second BGHW goalie to be selected to the All State Team and the 7th player in the past four seasons from BGHW to be honored. BGHW has had 16 players in its history chosen for the All State Team. The All State players are selected by opposing coaches, which goes to show you how impressive Evan has been, even though the team's record was not quite as stellar.
Evan has been the starting goalie on varsity for the past three years and played a big role while splitting time his freshman year. He was the starting goalie on our 2018 State Championship Team that beat Waubonsie Valley at United Center 7-2 and also made the IHSHL all star team all four years (I am pretty sure he is the only player in our conference's history to do so).
Evan has been one of the varsity captains the past two seasons and been a great leader for as we transitioned from a very veteran group of players that won 2 State Championships.
Evan plans on focusing on academics next year while attending the prestigious Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.
