Connor Shellenberger Pronunciation

2021 – “Evolution of offensive tactics occurring in front of our eyes daily … Combination of powerful dodges being added to his explosive shot …  learning both the midfield and attack roles.” 2020 – “Where do you put a first-year player who can make an impact at both attack and midfield? Connor’s versatility was seen daily this fall as we asked him to play both positions.  With a dynamic burst and powerful shot, he is a scoring threat from multiple spots on the field.  As he throws caution to the wind and becomes less concerned with turnovers, Connor’s game will rise to the next level.”
