It’s a big honor for me to finally get a shot at playing for the top organization and best team in the United States. I’ve always wanted to play with Jordan, Danny, and Tyler so I’m really looking forward to learning as much as I can from those guys as well as bringing my own unique viewpoint to help the team reach new heights.
