Im also just going with a gut feeling with these.

Draeger is born late 1993, with Shattuck he also won the World Sport School Challenge beating Finland and generally being the only real opposition that Finland got in the whole tournament.

Michigan State and Anastos seem to like him and other praise i read made me vote for him.
