The forward from Roscoe, Illinois, had 12 points in three North Iowa wins as the Bulls finished with a 45-3-0 record. After starting the week with a loss to Granite City on Wednesday, Santopoalo (5’7/160) picked things up on Friday with a goal and an assist in a 12-2 win over Breezy Point. On Saturday, Santopoalo had a hat-trick and three assists in a 10-1 win over Breezy Point and on Sunday, he recorded a goal and three assists in a 7-1 home win over Granite City. For the season, Santopoalo put up some incredible numbers finished 2nd in the NA3HL in goals with 50, finishing 2nd in assists with 68 and finishing 2nd in points with 118. He also finished 3rd in plus/minus with a +92. “Tim is the catalyst of our team. He is focused, he is trying to be an all-around student athlete. He has the ability with his speed to get around guys, but the way he sees the ice and the ability to read defenders and react really sets him apart,” said Bulls head coach Todd Sanden.
