Letsch was part of three MCC Championship teams in his four seasons with the Angels. This past season he helped lead St. Cat's to an 8-3 overall record and a 6-1 conference mark. The Senior Linebacker led the Angels into Level II of the WIAA Football playoffs where they lost a heartbreaker to eventual state runner-up Cedar Grove 43-40.
