Mayer Lutheran's Krueger returns to court after battle with cancer

Riley Krueger may not be the best player for the Crusaders but he's definitely the toughest.

MAYER, Minnesota — Game nights are a little more special at Mayer Lutheran. It's not just because it's Riley Krueger's senior season. 

After being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in 2018 he battled back to return to the court. 

"That was my main goal to play my senior season," Riley said. "I had to keep a optimistic view."

Through help from Make-A-Wish, Riley and his family will attend the Final Four in Atlanta this year.
