Janesville is known as “The City of Parks.”
That could be changed to “The City of Scouts.”
A column a few weeks ago detailed the rise of Janesville’s Pete Loizzo, who is a regional scout for the Cleveland Indians.
Loizzo’s fellow Janesville Craig High graduate, Max Giese, is a couple of notches higher.
Giese, 30, is the head United States scout for the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets.
Right now he is spending the summer at his home on South Pontiac Drive. He married his high school sweetheart, Chelsea Roehl. The couple has a 2-year-old daughter, Sailor.
In about a month, though, Giese will be back in ice arenas.
