TIFFANY ON ELDRIDGE
2023
– “How will the new faceoff specialist fare against Petey and Gable?  With a lot of build-up to this question, Mac has demonstrated to all of us that he is both technically and emotionally prepared for these significant challenges.  Mac has very quick hands and is a tactician:  he thoroughly examines each part of his pre-whistle positioning, and his body’s movements once the action begins.  While still learning the particulars of our substitution game, improvement is being realized with his stick skills as Mac has been immersed into all of our team’s drills.”

WHY UVA?
