Cousino Connection: Mustangs Ink Pair of Patriots
WARREN, Mich. — On Monday (03/05), the Mustangs visited Warren Cousino High School to sign a pair of seniors to their 2012-13 class. The signing reunites current Mustang, Kevin Dunaj, with his younger brother Corey Dunaj and former teammate Ben Stull.

Corey Dunaj, a 6’6″ senior forward/center, was the first to sign a 2012-13 Letter of Intent to play at Marygrove College next season. Dunaj will now reunite with his brother Kevin as the pair look to bring a championship to Marygrove after succeeding together at the high school level. In 2010, the Dunaj brothers helped lead the Patriots to a Macomb Area Conference (MAC) White Championship.
The Patriot senior has enjoyed a successful season-to-date on the hardwood this year. Recently, Dunaj was named First Team All-Conference (MAC White) and Second Team All-County (Macomb) for his outstanding play this season. An all-around athlete, Dunaj also received college offers in football after finishing a solid career as a tight end for the Patriots. This spring, Dunaj will hit the diamond as the projected right fielder and as one of the top pitchers in the Patriots rotation.
Coach Sichterman on Dunaj: Corey is an extremely versatile player that will give us a lot of options offensively. He is athletic at his size (6’6″) and should fit well into our system. We feel we got a very high quality player for our level today when we signed Corey. He and his brother (Kevin) give our team the character we are seeking to build a championship program at Marygrove. I look forward to coaching Corey next season.
Ben Stull, a 6’8″ center, also signed a 2012-13 Letter of Intent to join friend Corey Dunaj and his brother Kevin. Stull will head to Marygrove with two years varsity experience at Cousino. In his first year on varsity, Stull teamed up with the Dunaj brothers to help lead the Patriots to a 2010 MAC-White Championship.
Last year, Stull was named the Patriots’ Sixth Man of the Year after he posted stellar numbers throughout the campaign. Currently, Stull is readying for his senior season of baseball. The multi-sport athlete will hit the diamond this spring as a first baseman and pitcher for the Patriots. Stull’s 6’8″ frame also allowed him to excel on the gridiron during his days playing football for Cousino.
Coach Sichterman on Stull: Ben is an excellent young man that will represent our program the right way on and off the court. Ben immediately helps our frontcourt due to the fact that nobody has come to us with his size in the history of our program. Ideally, Ben will be able to contribute early in his career if he works hard to get into basketball shape once again. Ben is a natural athlete for his size and I believe he will have a successful collegiate career as a Mustang.
