TIFFANY ON GORDON
2020 – “One of the truest measures of a program is the strength of its depth. Our offense is better because of Mitch’s commitment to creating the best version of himself, his shooting prowess and his uncanny knack for hitting the net from seemingly impossible angles. With license to let it fly, Mitch is a significant scoring threat any time he receives the ball within 15 yards of the goal.” 2019 – “The lower the angle, the more precise this shooter becomes as he continues to prove he can score no matter where he is on the field or where the defense is arranged.” 2018 – “A skilled shooter, Mitch is taking the next steps in his development as a well-rounded, versatile attackman.  Strength gains in the weight room have been realized and subsequently Mitch is dodging with more physicality.  His willingness to take the extra step around the crease and absorb the hard check can create more offensive opportunities for us and will be the key to Mitch securing additional playing time.”
