Huddling with Hason

  • “The intensity level today was an eye opener for our freshmen and transfers. It [the intensity] caught us off guard for a few minutes and those few minutes exposed us to concede two quick goals. We ask our players to learn to bounce back quickly after setbacks and that’s exactly what we did and that in itself was a huge stepping stone which is going to help us climb up to the next level.”
