Where are they now?

Where are they now?

The season is about to start for NCAA D1 and our former Reivers around the country are wearing a new jersey, but inside is still the love for Iowa Western!  With such a strong class last year it will be exciting to see where they will go in the future but with no games this weekend the Reivers will be watching their former teammates compete in opening weekend for Division-1 Baseball.

Much like the program of excellence is known for the Reivers sent ten players onto the Division-1 level from last season as well as another two (Sean Chandler and Keaton Winn)  to the MLB Draft.  With schools such as University of Kentucky and Michigan State hosting a few former Reivers this is a list of players from last season that are currently in D-1 programs:
