Coaches Comments: “It has been a pleasure to coach Chase at a couple of different points in his youth experience, and to see the significant progress and growth in his game as well as his maturity as a person.  Chase is passionate about the game and backs it up with hard work, superior skill, including a left-footed rifle and game awareness.  The other players and I have enjoyed having him back for this concluding season, and I wish him well as he moves on to bigger and better things.” John Gygi
