According to Cannella, "he's a guy who has never stopped no matter who he is or what type of accolades he receives, he always pushes himself further" ... has done a great job in the weight room this year getting himself physically and mentally ready for this season ... will play some top attack men out there who will try to bury him on the crease ... improving to be a better off the ball defender, a better communicator.
