“We actually spotted Will at one of our Denver ID Camps about a year ago and were very intrigued by him.  He possessed a great demeanor that he coupled with some wonderful athletic tools. His ability to communicate effectively, start attacks from the back and shot stop are all qualities that the top-level modern day goalkeeper holds.
