TIFFANY ON D’AMARIO
“How does a fourth-year player contribute to the program he loves?  Mike has taken on vital roles for us, serving as both our offensive quarterback and as a soothing, supportive voice to fellow teammates.  Mike’s passion for UVA Lacrosse is second only to his sincere concern for the people that comprise it.  Known more as an acutely accurate shooter, Mike has developed his game to become a serious threat dodging to the goal. He combines crafty stick protection with a willingness to take a hard check.”
