Tommy Becker and Sean McWhirter Leave Team
Tommy Becker helped lead Wayzata to a 13-1 record and state championship in his senior season as he was a 2005 Star Tribune and KARE-11 All-Metro choice. Becker redshirted last season and played in four of six games this season at the fullback spot. He was recruited as a linebacker who moved to defensive end before switching to the offensive side of the field.
Sean McWhirter played at Orono and signed with Minnesota as a defensive end. He redshirted his freshman season and had played in just one season this year.
