TIFFANY ON HERRING
“The instinctual grasp of the game of lacrosse witnessed in Mikey is exceptional.  He comprehends and thrives in both the schematic designs as well as the non-scripted situations.  Such a keen sense is invaluable and makes Mikey a versatile weapon in Sean Kirwan’s arsenal.  There is stiff competition for starting positions, but Mikey can provide a jolt at both the attack and midfield positions.”
