TIFFANY ON RHOADS
“There is never a shortage of energy coming from this man.  Michael attacks our workouts and he does not hesitate to stay a little later and put in a little extra.  He is not our strongest or fastest defenseman, but Michael has an acute sense of the game and intelligent grasp of team defense.  He will most likely be implemented into our system as a long-stick midfielder, allowing him to make plays in the middle of the field.”
