TIFFANY ON WILLIAMS
"There is an artistic approach to the game of lacrosse with which Zed brings to the field. He sees both space and teammates simultaneously as he explores the opposing defense and leaves his mark. Having moved to the attack position, Zed is being asked to play with few restrictions, allowing his creativity to flourish unabashedly. Exceptional at the two-man game as well, Zed has the unique ability and style that complement most of his teammates."
