“Ed’s meticulous nature is what makes him a great athlete. He leaves no stone unturned. He has set his sights on the very best and as he gains faith in his current skill set, we will begin to see the results he deserves.”

“Ed made the travel team a few times last year and that gave him the start he needed. Just like last year, Ed has been working very hard on the range. With a little more tuning he will really start to put some solid numbers together on a regular basis. He has a great work ethic and solid focus. This will carry him to the level that he is reaching for.”
