Franks on Samkange:
Tosh has all the intangibles that a center-back needs and after having him on campus, we were ecstatic to add his character to our locker room. He is a competitor and a winner that brings the best out of his teammates. We will encourage him to be more vocal and take on more of a leadership role early in his career, but it’s because we believe that he is more than capable of doing it. His pace, athleticism, and ability to tackle will make him compete for a spot right away.
McCormick on Samkange:
Tosh is a hardnosed defender who is committed to helping the team win any way that he can. He makes the game tough on opposing attacking players and is someone you don’t want to play against. He is a stand up kid with great character who will be a leader by example whether it is on or off the field.
