Max Wooten Pronunciation

2024 – “Max made a monumental climb up the depth chart this fall. He has trained with intentionality, improving his on-ball defense and his commanding presence with directing traffic. Two years here is helping him with his anticipation of the next play. Max’s growth resulted in a start in our first scrimmage in Centreville at the American Boy Project Fall Brawl. Max gives us another effective option on defense. His eye-popping prowess in the weight room translates into his ability to defend the bigger, bulldozing opposing dodger.” 2023 – “Not that he was a small guy before, but Max has become a mountain of a man due to an absolute all-in commitment to the weight room during the summers here in Charlottesville with Coach Cuccia.  He may need that Mechanical Engineering degree to track his poundage trajectory.  Max has our staff employing him more at close defense now due to the physicality he can unload as he jams even the biggest of dodgers.  His stickwork is also a strong trait, as it continues to become more sophisticated.” 2022 – Earned a spot on the roster due to impressive stick skills and quickly proving a comprehensive grasp of our schemes. He’s comfortable in the middle of the field, both defending and pushing transition with the ball in his stick. One of our strongest first-years, Max is a powerful athlete. He will focus as an LSM this year.”
