Coach Dan Smith's quote: "He goes all out on every play, not only in the games but in the practices, too. He does not have a half speed, or three-quarters speed. Every time he touches the ball, he goes all out. He is always in high gear and going. He is also a quiet leader who leads by example. On occasion, he will lead by example, but he is not a real vocal kid. He's an Eagle Scout, which shows you what kind of leadership abilities he has. He is an oustanding young man."
