Reitmeier on Kort: “Really excited to announce the signing of Braiden Kort. We were looking to add another great light weight that could come in and compete right away and we found that in Braiden. Braiden and his family first off are great people! What drew me to Braiden is his attitude for competition. He loves to compete and has the skill set in all positions to do that at the DII level. Braiden brings a lot of state and national accolades. It will be exciting to watch the 2023 class compete with each other next year.”
