TIFFANY ON HOOPER
“The impact Scott is making with our program is felt in many ways.  As one of our captains, Scott is inspiring his teammates with consistent, tenacious defensive play and a patient, positively constructive voice.  Off the field, Scott has initiated and organized our venture with Team IMPACT, an outfit that has brought to us a new team member:  Brian.  Even more will be placed on Scott’s shoulders this spring as he will often be assigned some of the nation’s toughest attackmen to defend.”
