"The impact has already been made, in just one fall of collegiate lacrosse. Michael is proving to all of us, daily, that he has the mindset and the skills to play right away. He dodges with a boxer’s edge, willing to take a punch as goes straight for the objective. Michael’s combination of size, strength and technically-proficient skillset creates a versatile attackman who can score in multiple ways."
