Coach’s Outlook for 2011 season:
”We have a strong senior class returning, they are looking forward to filling big shoes and I have confidence they will be successful.

“Winning face-offs will be extremely important. We will feature new players at that position to include Jared Jacobs, Zach Gregory, Jordan Klunder, and Zach Paro. John Lopes will be a force to contend with in the goal. He has quick hands and imposing size. Behind him are three talented goalies in Andrew Anido, Brody Shea and Robbie Zonino.

“I could start any game with any one of these guys. We will have a potent offense with a strong attack and two balanced midlines. Our goal is to defend our title and we will work hard to do so.”
