2024 – “Anthony comes to Charlottesville after honing the art of the faceoff at the United States Naval Academy for two years. As the fortunate beneficiary of his transfer, we have inherited a talented athlete with the hand speed to win the ball. Larger than most faceoff specialists, Anthony is able to drive his opponent off the X. The details of our aggressive substitution game are becoming more familiar to him, and we are witnessing improvement with his stick skills as Anthony participates in all of our team’s drills.”
