TIFFANY ON FALK
“Jack’s role this spring will be as a defensive midfielder.  As one of our best one-on-one defenders, regardless of length of stick, Jack has the ability to deny an opposing offense’s initial attempt to create.  Jack is proficient with a strong punch and good footwork.  He has a knack for anticipating the dodger’s move, quite possibly due to his own past success as an initiator.”
