In his last two seasons with the Maroons, Gamamou, who did not play last fall, tallied 28 goals as they won a Western Big 6 Conference title each year. He was an All-Big 6 and All-Sectional honoree each season.

The Crusaders, a member of the Horizon League, went 5-8-5 last season. Three of those losses were by one goal to nationally ranked opponents.
