Wirsing now reunites with former Lumberjacks Head Coach Jim Mosso who said of his commitment ”we are very excited to have Sawyer join us here at Concordia. Sawyer brings a very high work ethic and a great attitude to the locker room. Having coached Sawyer in my time at Vermont, we look forward to him contributing to the culture we are building in the locker room. As a coach, Sawyer has a ton of tools to work with and he has a potential to develop into a high end player at the college level”.
"I have enjoyed developing on and off the ice the last 3 years with the Lumberjack family”, said Sawyer, “the bonds and memories I've created will stay with me throughout my career and lifetime"
