TF United coach Mark Misch: “Tonight was the first match of the season. We are a very young and talented at the JV level. Varsity is ‘senior’’ heavy. Some athletes have never played in our program, let alone together, and are also extremely talented. Varsity will be competitive with more experience. Quentin McCray has been in our program for four years and has played four years of club ball with Ultimate and UNO. He is a great student, a great athlete and a great kid. This is Adrian Gonzales’ first year in our program. He is a transfer student from Mexico who speaks very little English. He hits high and hard. He really surprised me tonight.”
