TIFFANY ON SCHWENK
“Joining us this year after transferring in from Monmouth, Justin is filling a critical role for our program.  As a faceoff specialist, Justin embraces the grind.  He enjoys the one-on-one battles at the X despite the physical punishment it brings.  Actually, Justin’s physicality is one of his strongest attributes as he combines good hand speed with noteworthy power.  The team has embraced Justin swiftly and we are fortunate to have him with us.”
