“Quiet and unassuming, it is not surprising to see this man shy away from the spotlight off the field.  But on it, Mikey makes his presence known as a savvy attackman who is an ideal line-mate due to his unselfish play.  His radar is always on, probing the opposing defense for holes and opportunities to set up others for their shot.  Mikey’s sound understanding of the game and our schemes makes him a compelling option in all of Sean Kirwan’s offensive designs.”
