20. Ian Geisler (Jr., Huntley) 
Heading into state, I knew that Geisler could be great after pushing Thomas Shilgalis to the limits at sectionals. He proved me right by taking 17th place at state. He enters NXR without his team as he is running unattached. This should be a great learning experience for Geisler and hopefully, he takes away a lot from the experience.
