STILLWATER, Okla.— The senior class of 2020 had their season stolen from them.
For reasons outside of their control, they will never be able to pursue goals for which they worked so hard.
As part of a recurring segment for the remainder of this spring, coaches have the opportunity to thank their seniors one last time.
Continuing the series is Oklahoma State Coach Dustin Bunch talking about his five seniors.
#1 Jase Simon, Attack
Northfield, Minn. (Northfield)
“Jase was one of the best attackmen I have ever coached. He was a force to be reckoned with on the field due to his sheer size and playing ability and this helped him surpass the 100 career goal mark in his first three seasons.
"He has one of the brightest personalities and this is why he has been a leader both on and off the field during his time at Oklahoma State.”
#13 Jake Hamilton, Midfield
Plano, Texas (Plano West)
“Jake, a man of few words but lots of skill, played four seasons at Oklahoma State. As one of the best all-around players the program has ever seen, he led by example in everything he did.
"Jake was always working hard and earned a roll as a captain because his lead-by-example mindset never went unnoticed.”
#14 Evan Parscale, Goalkeeper
Richardson, Texas (Richardson)
“Evan played goalie for three years while at Oklahoma State. Although we missed not having him on the field for his junior year, he came back better than ever for his senior season.
"Watching him defend the goal against some of the nation’s top-ranked teams this semester was awesome.”
#16 Kyle Raineri, Faceoff Specialist
St. Louis, Mo. (CBC)
“Kyle was our designated faceoff guy for four years. Despite the fact that he may have cared more about the way his hair looked, he managed to rack up well over 100 career faceoff wins.
"I believe he even had a few goals and assists throughout his time at OSU.”
#26 Will Ferguson, Defense
Lewisville, Texas (Hebron)
“Will is a beast on the field. He is a relentless defender who will do whatever it takes to get the ball. He played for OSU for four seasons and was a consistent contributor.
"Always at practice and stepping up during games, his leadership will be missed on the field for future seasons.”
