TIFFANY ON FISH
“There are multiple ways this man can create offense and put pressure on the opposition.  AJ’s game is highlighted by a strong combination of high lacrosse IQ and sophisticated skills.  This past fall, AJ proved he can be a threat in both the settled and unsettled, an area that really accentuates his sport-specific acumen.  While there is still some question what his role will be, there is no questioning the fact that AJ will be on the field making us a more dangerous team.”
