Coach Spates on Bach:
"Joe Bach, we think, is going to be one of the great surprises of this class. He kind of flew under the radar even though he was undefeated the last two years in winning two Kansas state championships. Actually, with one exception this year, was unscored on. Most people thought he was going to choose football so he was no given a great deal of attention. We think that Joe has the potential to be a great one."
