Last season, Saraceno was the sixth or seventh man off the bench for the Marist Spartans. Fast forward one year, he's now the lone senior starter and the leader of a young spartans team.

"Bringing the energy in practice and playing my hardest out there and leading by example and get everyone to talk on defense and move the ball like we should and just play our best," he said.
