He posses great size and strength. He has faced a life threatening challenge having been diagnosed with non Hodgkin lymphoma in 2007. He defeated that so we know what kind of fight he has in him. We feel he will be a great addition to our defensive unit and are expecting a great season from him in 2020"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
