BATON ROUGE, Louisiana, April 20, DIVING coach Doug Shaffer announced the signing of Michael Neubacher on Friday.

Neubacher, a native of Windermere, Fla., prepped at Olympia High School and is a two-time FHSAA Class 3A state runner-up. He is also a three-time high school All-American, a Junior Olympic finalist and a Senior National qualifier.
