Last season Andrew Natinsky came off the bench for Highland Park.

This year as a senior his role is to be a leader for the Giants. It’s a role he gladly accepted.

“Our coach asked me to step into a leadership role since I’m one of the more experienced guys,” Natinsky said. “I try to help direct some of the younger guys to keep everyone on the same page and help them stay composed.

"In the offseason, I worked a lot on my shooting. (Assistant) coach (Curt) Hanson has helped me with my form. I think I’ve done a good job with my new role.”
