Gavin Tygh Pronunciation

TIFFANY ON TYGH
2021 – “Moved his bed into the weight room … attacking the new faceoff rules with his own version of quickness and power … improving with first-time grounders … more than capable, he is an offensive-minded goal-scorer.” 2020 – “With a returning stable of faceoff men who have substantially proven themselves, including a man who earned the single-season faceoff record for Virginia in 2018 and another who quickly established himself as one of the most impactful in 2019, how could a first-year possibly unsettle the order?  Gavin has already done this, combining impressive speed and athleticism with a growing technical grasp of the faceoff.  He is also proving to be one of our best on-ball short-stick defenders.”
