    ON SCHNEIDER: Competing to be UMass' starting goalie as a freshman ... a great communicator in the goal ... has great confidence in the goal ... according to Cannella, "is probably the best leader as a freshman goalie that I've had since I've been here" ... feels very comfortable leading the defense and taking charge out there. ... clearing-wise he is the same, a take-charge guy ... has an ability to make the big save ... a solid all around, a good stopper ... a guy who isn't afraid to work hard.
