“We’ve known each other for a long time, I came to start coaching there when he was younger. He has grown immensely as a man. He is a strong family man with a great character and he backs it up on the field with his talent, he’s led us from the front right from the start. I’m really proud of him not only as a captain but as part of our group.”
