Coaches comment: According to Rich Piccinini, Mike was a big reason why PT made a school-record, third straight appearance in the football playoffs. “He was a true leader on and off the field. A very intelligent person who leads by example,” Piccinini said. “He has a tremendous upside and his future is bright. Mike will be hugely successful in anything that he sets out to achieve. While he is a great player, Mike’s an even better person.”
