Ben Wayer Pronunciation

TIFFANY ON WAYER
2022 –
Taking the proverbial next step in front of our eyes, and these are not baby steps … Making plays up and down the field … Anticipates the opposing offense’s next pass, and then attacks the ball or the receiver … Hunts ground balls and has exceptional skills to make them end up in his long stick.” 2021 – “A lot to work with here … has a sophisticated handle with his long stick … will focus as a long-stick midfielder and play on faceoff wings … proving himself already to have a good foundation with the team schemes.”
