Coach Tom Aurandt's quote: "Max performed very well. We played two days at Scotch Valley. The first day it was calm, the second day it was raining all day. For Max to score on both days as he did says a lot about his play. I'm very happy for him. He is very deserving of this honor. He has put in hours and hours of practice. His hard work has paid off."
