“A first-year goalie, this mild-mannered, unassuming young man off the field transforms himself once he steps into the crease.  It is both this presence and Alex’s shot-stopping abilities that builds his teammates’ confidence in him.  The poise belies his youth, yet it is clearly evident.  Alex is also demonstrating the dexterity to quickly and accurately release the ball with his outlet passing after a save.  Alex is in the thick of the competition for the starting position in our goal.”
