Instant analysis

Maxwell had a monster senior year at Greendale High, being named Unanimous First Team AP All-State along with fellow Badgers commit Jaden Gault (the two actually played against each other in the WIAA Division 3 state championship in November). T.J. Woods will have plenty of players to mold in this class, providing depth to a line where numbers were smaller last season.
