Three Lakes - Evan Loduha signed a letter of intent to play football at UW-Oshkosh next season. Last fall, Loduha lead the Bluejays in both rushing and passing yards, helping the team to a 5-3 record.

He felt the decision to attend Oshkosh was easy, as the staff and fellow players welcomed him with open arms. 

"Just everything about them, about the guys that I met were, they were just great guys. All around great people," said Loduha.

One of the most impressive parts of Evan's career so far is that he continues to play at a high level while living with Type 1 Diabetes. 

"I've had it since I was two, so I don't know life without it," explained Loduha. "There are some challenges, here and there. I'll have high blood sugars or low blood sugars in games, and that's the only drawback there would be to playing with it."

Before Evan heads to Oshkosh, he'll play baseball this spring for the Bluejays.
