For Head Coach Jacob Smulevitch, he knows his Infantry are not making the playoffs. That does not change the work ethic he has shown in building the team and a culture in a new building in short order. In the past week the Infantry didn’t get the results they wanted, but Smulevitch had a lot to say.

“Despite us losing all of our games our teams continued to support each other and buy into the development process of building a foundation for years to come.”

On recruiting for next year in this roster he said “ I am looking for the players that have expressed an interest in returning and in addition evaluating players we might be interested in bringing in once the offseason begins.”

On the interest in leading scorer Thomas Filoramo Smulevitch said “Thomas has had tons of interest in him but is still currently deciding if he wants to attend school or go into the workforce.”

He believes in his group as is down the strech and wants to let his groups finish and write their own place in the first page of Infantry History “For the most part we will let the teams finish as they are.”

On the ownership group and what he’s learned from them “I am incredibly lucky to be part of this ownership group. I have learned so much from all of them and truly couldn’t be more appreciative of the opportunities they’ve given me.” The Infantry take on the Mad Hatters this weekend with a chance to earn more good things for this team, and to have their players get more looks at the next level.
